 The University of Tasmania is aware that changes to university accommodation are challenging, but will do everything they can to support students in the transition, according to Vice-Chancellor of the University of Tasmania, Professor Rufus Black.

Yesterday students at university accommodation in Hobart were informed that there were far more applications for accommodation than there are rooms, and as a result some returning students may not find themselves without accommodation.

VC Professor Black joins Brian Carlton this morning and says that usually 40% of existing residents would continue to stay on at university accommodation, but this year 100% indicted they would be staying on.

They also discuss when the development applications will be submitted for the new Launceston and Burnie UTas campuses.
