Launceston

Tasmania’s second largest city, Launceston offers a vibrant blend of culture, nature, and industry. As a student, you have the chance to live right in the heart of the action.

Launceston is home to both our Newnham and Inveresk campuses. Newnham is a spacious, 50-hectare campus overlooking the stunning Tamar River, and just a short drive from the city centre. Our Inveresk Campus is located near the inner city, alongside the Queen Victoria Museum and Art Gallery.

The University offers a range of convenient and comfortable accommodation options. These include studio apartments, on-campus accommodation, and more.

Inveresk will become the main campus for Launceston from 2024, with a staged transition for students from 2023. Find out more here.
