Live in the heart of Australia’s hippest city while you study. With the opening of its new MidCity Accommodation, right in the centre of Tasmania’s capital city, Hobart, we now offer you the best of both worlds – a first-class education and a vibrant student lifestyle.

Everything on your doorstep

Enjoy catered meals, tutorials and student support services all in-house. Then, when you shut down your laptop, head downstairs to one of the city best cafes for a well-deserved coffee break, saunter through Salamanca Market to pick up the latest bargain, or check out the latest nightlife spot down at the harbour. During semester breaks, join the crowds on the city streets at one of Hobart’s many famous festivals, including Dark Mofo, Mona Foma or The Taste.

Australia’s tourism capital only minutes from the university

Once a colonial maritime town, Tasmania’s capital city is now Australia’s tourist mecca. Elegant sandstone restaurants and bustling cafes nestled on a beautiful waterfront, with a picturesque snow-capped mountain as a backdrop, there is no questioning the attraction of Hobart to students and tourists alike. Why live in the suburbs when you could be where the action is and still be 5 minutes away from the University by bus or 10 minutes by bike.

Need it? We’ve got it!

Located in the centre of Hobart at the corner of Elizabeth and Bathurst Streets, MidCity Accommodation’s opening adds 140 more beds to the University’s accommodation portfolio. Each room includes its own ensuite bathroom and wifi. If you’re keen to reduce costs (or room with a friend from home), MidCity also offers twin share rooms and some limited rooms for couples. Naturally, the residence offers UTAS’s usual great student perks including student lounges, quiet study areas, dining/social areas and laundry facilities.

MidCity’s opening this month follows close on the heels of the launch of the University’s first downtown accommodation in Melville Street earlier this year. We will likely see more residential halls open as the University continues to invest more resources into accommodation and infrastructure around Tasmania.
