Nearby the University
As well as the University itself the surrounding suburb of Sandy Bay has a range of accommodation options that will cater to all needs. These are all within walking distance to the University, Hobart city and the wharf area. Some examples of the kind of places that may be available include Grovesnor Court Apartment, St Ives Apartments, Red Awnings Apartments, Apartments at Woolmers, Mayfair Plaza Hotel, and the Blue Hills Hotel (check out the contacts page for locations of these options). Of course it is also worth checking out Stayz and Airbnb for plenty of great alternative options.
Beyond Sandy Bay, the city itself also offers a myriad of potential accommodation options (too many to list here). The city is within easy walking distance from the University (20 – 30 minutes) but there are also many busses that service the University from the centre of the city. For those of you looking for budget accommodation the city has a number of budget hostels. These include the Pickled Frog, The Brunswick Hotel, Imperial Hotel, and Hobart Central YHA.
