There's more to university than study. It should be an unforgettable experience that changes the way you see the world. That's why we encourage you to explore beyond the classroom and take part in the social opportunities on offer. You can connect with new people through events, sports, volunteering opportunities, and more.

Our campuses

Our university has campuses in the three distinct regions of Tasmania: Hobart in the south, Launceston in the north and Burnie in the north-west. We also have two campuses in Sydney.

Each campus is home to a thriving student community, with loads of events and social opportunities to engage with.
