Campus Information

The University of Tasmania’s Sandy Bay campus is set on 100 hectares in the beachside suburb of Sandy Bay, just five minutes’ drive south of the city centre.

This campus sits between Mount Wellington and the Derwent River, partially fringed by natural bushland but within a busy urban community. The campus is close to shops, transport, accommodation, entertainment and services and is just a short walk to Hobart and drive from Hobart Airport.

Many University faculties are based at the Sandy Bay campus and share close links with our city-based satellite campuses. Student services on-campus include banking, computer services, doctor, gym, library, post office and Student Services & Information Centre.

The Homestay Program

To help international students feel settled in Hobart, we encourage living with a local homestay family. Available to students at any age or study level, homestay provides the opportunity for an authentic local experience with a Tasmanian family and the chance to improve your English skills every day.

Under 18 homestay

International students who are under 18 at the commencement of their course must have approved accommodation arrangements.

On-campus student accommodation

Be part of a vibrant student community and enjoy the convenience of student accommodation. Choose between five on-campus accommodation options at our Sandy Bay campus.

Rental accommodation

This is a common option for international students over 18 years of age as renting a flat or house is one of easiest and most convenient types of accommodation. Students can rent a room, their own flat, or rent a house together with other students, known in Australia as ‘housemates’.
