Life on Campus

Hobart is a perfect slice of urban living on the edge of pristine wilderness. Study in the heart of the city, on the harbour, and by the beach.

The campus is located in the beachside suburb of Sandy Bay, five minutes’ drive south of the city centre. This scenic campus is close to shops, transport, accommodation, entertainment and services and is just a short walk from the Hobart CBD.

In addition to purpose-built teaching and learning facilities, this campus has a range of on-site amenities and resources, many of which are located in the Tasmanian University Student Association (TUSA) building on Churchill Avenue.
