TUU Spaces

Following a Statewide staff consultation we have made the decision to deny access to our TUU spaces around Tasmania until further notice.

This has been decided based upon official recommendations. We will be displaying signage around this at the entrances to our TUU spaces.

In order to comply with the current guidelines, our staff are implementing working from home arrangements. We will update you as soon as we are able to reopen our spaces to students once again.
