We’ve Got Your Back This Session

by

Your career begins when you start uni, so making sure you settle in and know what services are available to you is super important to make sure you’re on the right track. So, whether everything’s going fine or your world has blown up, we can help make your uni experience a success!

1. Timetable

Enrol in your subjects on My Student Admin and choose classes via myTimetable. For the more complicated stuff, submit an eRequest to the Student Centre team.

2. Jobs

Refine (or start creating) your resume, get career advice, hire a suit, and take a LinkedIn headshot at UTS Careers Drop-in.

3. Relax

Work out those stress knots with a discounted remedial massage or acupuncture at our very own Chinese Medicine Clinic.

4. Mental and physical health

Multilingual, trauma-trained counsellors are on campus to help you navigate anything life throws at you (plus it won’t cost you!). We’ve also got bulk-billed doctors and a physiotherapy and dietitian clinic.

5. Assessments

If you’re all Wikipedia and no library, it’s time to fix that. Learn how to use the library (yes, that’s a thing) to avoid #fakenews and secure those HD’s this session.

6. Report and support

#timesup

You can (and should) report inappropriate behavior online and reach out if you need support.

7. Accessibility

Living with a disability, a medical, or mental health condition? Chat to Accessibility Services for help with access needs and assessment arrangements.

8. Computers

Need Microsoft Office or Adobe Suite? UTS students can be eligible for computer and software discounts. And, if money is tight, you might be able to loan a laptop for study.

9. Security

The Security Team are here to make sure you’re safe. If you feel unsure or unsafe at any time, chat to them. They can also escort you to your car or the station, give you a lift in the UTS shuttle, and provide first-aid. They’re also your go-to for lost property, so if you lose your phone around campus, let them know!

10. Food

UTS has regular free food events, like Bluebird Brekkie Bar, Night Owl Noodle Bar and hundreds of ActivateUTS events each session!

11. Scholarships

Every year there are scholarships available to new and existing UTS students. It’s easy to see which scholarship may apply to you. Some can even help you study overseas!

12. Campus shortcuts

If you don’t know the quickest way between the Tower Building and Building 8, you probably need to download MyUTSmaps. It’s UTS’s equivalent to the Marauder’s Map.
