Campus Information

Sport and Recreation, Sandy Bay Campus
Sport and Recreation, Sandy Bay Campus


UTAS has three main campuses in Tasmania - the Sandy Bay Campus in Hobart, the Newnham Campus in Launceston and the Cradle Coast Campus in Burnie. Each campus is large enough to offer a vibrant and unique learning environment, but still small enough to ensure friendly interaction between staff and students, and a strong focus on the individual. 

UTAS also offers satellite campuses for creative arts, the Launceston-based Australian Maritime College and, the newest facility, the Medical Science Precinct in Hobart’s CBD. 

In addition, UTAS has two campuses in Sydney, where students can undertake the Bachelor of Nursing.  The Sydney campuses are at Darlinghurst with St Vincent's and Mater Health Services and at Rozelle with the Sydney South West Area Health Service and South Eastern Sydney and Illawarra Area Health Service. 


The main Hobart campus is set on 100 hectares in the suburb of Sandy Bay, overlooking the Derwent River and five minutes travel from the city centre. It has magnificent Mount Wellington as a backdrop and much of the upper campus is in natural bushland.

The University’s Conservatorium of Music is located near to the city centre, across from picturesque St David’s Park and in close proximity to vibrant Salamanca Place.

The Tasmanian School of Art is housed in a striking refurbished warehouse on Hunter Street adjacent to historic Sullivan’s Cove, and includes studios and gallery space.

Our newest facility in Hobart is the Medical Science Precinct containing the Medical Science 1 building opened in early 2010. Located in the heart of the CBD next to the Royal Hobart Hospital, this building houses the School of Medicine and the Menzies Research Institute.

Other facilities in the south include the University Farm near Richmond, which is the site for agricultural research, and the University’s radio telescope and Grote Reber Physics Museum.


The main campus in Launceston is situated on 50 hectares at Newnham on the banks of the Tamar River, and is only ten minutes from the CBD. The campus offers a range of state-of-the-art facilities including a nursing simulation centre and a Human Interface Technology Laboratory (HIT Lab AU).

The Australian Maritime College, an institute of UTAS, is also located at Newnham and is Australia’s best-equipped maritime education, training and research institute with facilities including training vessels, an integrated marine simulator, towing tank, fire fighting and emergency response centre, a flume tank, a cavitation tunnel, and a model testing basin.

Closer to the city centre in Launceston at Inveresk are the School of Visual and Performing Arts, and the School of Architecture and Design, both housed in award-winning refurbished railway workshops. With close proximity to the Queen Victoria Museum and Art Gallery, the Inveresk site is notable as an inner-city cultural precinct providing a focus for theatre, visual arts and design.


Based at Burnie on the picturesque north-west coast, the award-winning Cradle Coast Campus is set in peaceful rural surroundings and offers a modern, purpose-built teaching and learning facilities.

The campus underwent an extensive expansion in 2008 and offers students flexible teaching and learning spaces and new exercise and recreational facilities including the Wellness Centre and the outdoor Rage Cage.



The University established a presence in Sydney in 2006 through the School of Nursing and Midwifery, and is now teaching at two Sydney campuses.

The Darlinghurst campus is located in the inner city, close to both train and bus services, and offers the Bachelor of Nursing.

The Rozelle campus is located in the inner western suburbs of Sydney, approximately a 20-minute bus ride from the CBD. The Rozelle campus also offers the Bachelor of Nursing and recently introduced a Bachelor of Paramedic Practice.
