TUU Spaces

The TUU has a number of spaces designed to help you get what you need from your university experience.

So whether you want some quiet time, need access to a suitable study area, want a space to feel safe, need a location for your clubs or society meeting, or just want to hang out with friends, you are welcome!

All rooms and spaces have student access to University WiFi.

Details of each room and space are included below.

Please note that the capacity of these spaces is currently listed as the original ‘business as usual’ limit, and then the limit as compliant with UTAS Covid-19 risk management requirements. Current capacity is therefore quite limited.

Rooms and spaces are not currently available to students due to UTAS Policies restricting events on campus.

Booking and using TUU Spaces

Covid-19 Restrictions

At the moment, events are unable to be run on campus due to UTAS safety requirements.

If you or your club or society would like support in running an offsite event, please contact us .

Making a booking

At the moment, our spaces are available to book during business hours only. If you require a space outside of regular business hours, please contact us .

Select the page of the room or venue you are interested in, check that it meets all of your requirements, and then complete the booking form.

Depending on the type of event you are planning on running, this may be the first of many steps.

The Ref Steps are a well known space where students have been running events for decades.

If you have an event which is best run outdoors, the Ref Steps is a great option. There is plenty of room to move around, meet people, and hang out. The shape of the space also allows for a theatre-style set up with the steps creating an informal staging area.

There is also a BBQ available.
