Child care

UTS Child Care Inc. (UTSCC) coordinates all childcare services at City campus. Hours of operation are 8am to 6.30pm, 50 weeks per year.

Long day care is available for 0–5 year olds and can be accessed on a full-time or part-time basis (minimum enrolment is two weekdays).

UTS Child Care centres charge a fee comparable to other childcare centres. It is strongly suggested to place your name on either or both of the waiting lists as early as possible. UTS staff and students may be eligible for a number of subsidies to assist with the cost of child care.

Students' Association

The Students' Association (SA) is the representative body for students at UTS. It represents all students of the University on welfare and education issues.

The Students' Representative Council (SRC) is the group of elected students that enacts, directs and coordinates the work of the SA. UTS students (excepting exchange and INSEARCH students) have the right to stand for election to the SRC and vote in the annual elections.

The University supports the existence of professional advocacy staff, for academic and non-academic appeals and to run the peer tutor scheme.

The Students' Association is home to a number of collectives that run campaigns, and hold regular events and meetings.

The SA also operates a second-hand textbook shop, a free weekly breakfast (the Bluebird Brekkie Bar), a student newspaper (Vertigo) as well as facilitating student support by providing various information, education and action campaigns to benefit students. The Students' Association, in conjunction with the University, has also opened a free legal service for all UTS students.
