Campus

The picturesque Sandy Bay campus of the University of Tasmania is nestled between the awe-inspiring Mount Wellington and the magnificent Derwent River in the glamorous suburb of Sandy Beach. This is just a 35 minute walk from Hobart city centre. A diverse art and culture scene as well as numerous hip cafés and restaurants await you here.

The unique campus location offers a good mix of urban flair due to the proximity to many shops and numerous leisure opportunities and unspoilt nature, which makes for an ideal learning environment. Oppossums and kangaroos hop around the grounds early in the morning and late at night.

Most of the University of Tasmania’s faculties are located on the modern Sandy Bay campus.

The 50-acre Launceston campus directly overlooks the scenic River Tamar. It is home to the Australian Maritime College, a world-class teaching and research institution. The Human Interface Technology Lab (HITLab AU), the only facility of its kind in Australia, is also located on the Launceston campus. The suburb of Newnham and a large shopping center are just a few minutes’ drive from the site and are easily accessible by public transport.

The college town of Hobart

As the capital of Tasmania, Hobart is the southernmost and at the same time smallest capital of Australia. That gives her a very special charm. It has a port, beautiful old buildings, a few parks and small suburbs. The approximately 218,000 residents at the foot of Mount Wellington have a vibrant arts and crafts scene and a strong sense of history. There is, for example, the “Tudor Court” open-air museum, a model replica of a late Gothic English village, or the “Tasmanian Museum & Art Gallery” with the oldest building in the city and Aboriginal and settler history as a focus. However, Hobart also has other sides to offer, such as the world-famous Sydney-Hobart Regatta, which takes place in December, or the weekly market on Salamanca Place every Saturday. The weather is temperate and mild all year round with four distinct seasons. If the weather is good, you should drive up Mount Wellington and enjoy the view.
