At TUSA we welcome students from all backgrounds and walks of life. Moving countries to pursue higher education at UTAS is a daunting task, so we’ve created this page to help you navigate university life. Scroll for info on the communities you’ll want to join, the people you can come to with concerns and questions, and a Frequently Asked Questions section answering any other questions you may have.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
There are accommodation options at every UTAS campus. Campus accommodation is a great way to meet people, and is an easier and more convenient option than the private rental market (especially in Hobart, houses are impossible to find!). Find more help with accommodation here.
Although it is your responsibility to ensure that any visa and passport requirements are met at all times, the International Student Advisors can point you in the direction you need to go to make sure you have met, and continue to meet legal requirements. The ‘Study Australia’ and ‘Study Tasmania‘ websiteare some helpful resources that you can check out!
