The TUSA will often run this thing called a Vent Tent – a literal tent where our student reps would chat to students about issues bothering them, and offer support and assistance. We will be having several of these throughout the year across all campuses.
However, we know that a lot of students are studying online, or simply need to get things off their chest ASAP, so we have made Vent Tent an online survey, where you could vent to us about what is bothering you. This could be a personal issue, or something more general.
This time, we’re bringing back Vent Tent so you can vent to us on how you feel about the content or the delivery of your unit(s) and your broader student experience.
Other than Vent Tent, you are also always welcome to contact one of our Student Reps or Student Advocates to chat.
In the past, we have also run two Special Vent Tents, focusing on issues you have raised with us:
- University changes due to Covid-19, and
- Student Mental Health.
You can find the reports from these research pieces on our Research and Reports page.
How can Vent Tent make a difference for you?
We gather student feedback and take it directly to UTAS for answers and action.
If you haven’t had success using the ‘proper’ channels, get in touch. If you provide your details, we can follow up on your behalf, and let you know what additional supports are available to you.
We are elected by you to represent you, so let us know what you need and we will gladly help out.
Special Issues Vent Tent
From time to time we like to do a ‘deep dive’ into big issues. This time, we want you to have your say on how you feel about the content or the delivery of your unit(s).
