Tasmanian University Student Association

The Tasmanian University Student Association (TUSA), previously known as the Tasmania University Union (TUU), was established in 1899 to represent students.

The Association is a student-led collective dedicated to two core principles: student leadership and our student community.

Whenever a decision is being made that is likely to affect UTAS students, we always strive to have a student leader at the table.

As a UTAS student, you have access to Association staff, services, equipment, and facilities:

  • Lobbying and representation on issues important to you as a student
  • Independent support and advocacy
  • Financial support and counseling
  • Social connection through our 130+ Clubs and Societies and student-led events
  • Great facilities such as Clubs & Societies meeting rooms, kitchen, and lounge areas equipped with a ping pong table, Wii, and board games
  • Safe spaces including Women’s Space, Queer Space, and Parenting Rooms.
The Association’s student leaders are elected by students and are accountable to students. The Association and Student Reps are fiercely independent when it matters, and we work closely with our University partners to achieve the best outcomes for students.
