Students studying at the Launceston campus of the University of Tasmania can expect state of the art facilities, modern buildings, attractive and spacious grounds, quality accommodation and recreation options, and a friendly and inclusive learning environment.
Located on 50 hectares at Newnham on the banks of the Tamar River, the campus is ideally situated. It offers access to regular public transport into the city centre (just 10 minutes away by bus), a wide variety of shopping facilities within walking distance, and affordable accommodation options both on and off campus.
Highlights of the Launceston campus include the Australian Maritime College, which offers world-class teaching and research facilities, with leading courses in Maritime Engineering and Hydrodynamics, Ports and Shipping, and Marine Conservation and Resource Sustainability. The new Human Interface Technology Lab (HITLabAU) - the only such facility in Australia - offers virtual/mixed reality technologies with a focus on design, visualisation, simulation and games. The School of Nursing & Midwifery’s state of the art simulation centre enables students to participate in a range of low, medium and high fidelity simulation activities throughout their study.
A satellite campus of the University is located at an historic Inveresk site, and encompasses the School of Visual & Performing Arts and the School of Architecture & Design in impressively-refurbished former tram sheds and new state of the art buildings. Students at the Inveresk site enjoy being part of an inner-city cultural precinct that enables cross-fertilisation of ideas between the theatre, visual arts and design disciplines in Launceston.
Combined with flexible learning areas featuring computer labs and interactive study environments and a new sport and recreation centre, these world-class facilities make the Launceston campus an attractive option for prospective students.
