LHG celebrates the rich contribution UTAS makes to our local community and economy. We also fully support and acknowledge the importance of a tertiary education and recognise the particular challenge of finding appropriate accommodation for students who come from regional Tasmania, interstate and overseas.
We will enter into a working agreement with the University to develop specific strategies to manage the housing needs of University students as a key group in need of affordable housing in Hobart.
LHG acknowledges the importance of housing policies that plan for future demand, rather than react to a crisis in supply.
We will work collaboratively with UTAS to consider the city’s overall liveability needs and the aspiring student demand from Tasmania, interstate and overseas.
