Our accommodation

Join a vibrant student community living near or on-campus where you'll make friends and share the best lifestyle and uni experience.

We're currently guaranteeing all Australian students space in our uni accommodation. And with a fully refundable deposit, you have nothing to lose if you change your mind.

From self-contained apartments to communal living colleges, we have accommodation to suit your needs. We also offer plenty of financial support to keep our accommodation affordable and have options that fall under the Australian Government's National Rent Affordability Scheme.

This gives you close access to the inner city, beaches, or our campuses – all on a student's budget.

Jump into uni life

Our accommodation helps you make friends and get the most of your time at uni. Having constant support around you, you'll always have someone to chat to and study with.

Join a community where you'll feel safe, where residents look out for each other, and where you can take part in enriching activities. Our friendly Residential Leaders and staff will get you started.

Get involved

As a resident there are plenty of events and programs to get involved in. You can keep fit, rug up on a movie night, take art classes, compete in sports, tour the state, and much more.

Connection to place and culture

Develop an appreciation for the unique attributes of Tasmania, indigenous cultures, the University and other communities through resident field trips and place-based learning activities.

Shared table

Communities are built over conversations. Develop professional networks and experiences, exchange ideas creatively and intellectually and celebrate the richness of our community over shared meals.

Sustainability

Make meaningful real world contributions to Tasmania and the world through a diverse range of creative challenges. You can also check the sustainability portal for info about student programs and opportunities.

Future readiness and leadership

Establish networks and develop your employability and leadership potential by engaging in experiences that will extend and challenge you within the University, community and industry.

Campus sport

Represent your community in weekly sports competitions including basketball, badminton, futsal, netball and more. You can also access regular fitness, wellbeing, and general health programs.

Arts and performance

Get involved in a wide range of inter-community activities where you will make long-lasting friendships and explore diverse interests recreationally or competitively... well, socially competitively at least.

Safety and security

In addition to on-site security and maintenance, we provide residents in our accommodation with technology, training and support to build a culture of physical and personal safety.

Health and wellbeing

Physical, mental and social wellbeing is always important, but especially when you've relocated for uni. We’re here to help with this, and to support your financial security and academic success.

Heath and wellbeing training

Workshops and training are run throughout the year including drug and alcohol education, cultural awareness, consent and building respectful relationships.

Regular check-in meetings

Check-ins provide opportunities to discuss your accommodation experience, build connections, and support your academic success to make the most of your time at uni.

Additional services

Student advisers, counselling services and the Safe and Fair Community Unit work alongside our accommodation team to ensure you are safe, well and healthy.
