A brief description of the institution’s main campus and other aspects of the institutional boundary used to complete this report:

The University of Tasmania's Sandy Bay campus (main campus) is set on 100 hectares in the beachside suburb of Sandy Bay, five minutes' drive south of the city centre. This scenic campus sits between Mount Wellington and the Derwent River and is partially fringed by natural bushland, but is also located within a busy urban community.
The University's boundary includes all facilities associated with teaching and learning, research and operational activities located at all Australian properties occupied by University staff and students for which the University has operational control. Operational control of facilities at all sites was determined according to Section 11; National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting (NGER) Act 2007 and was based on whether the University had the authority to introduce and implement operational, health and safety, and environmental policies for the activities undertaken on a site occupied by the University, irrespective of whether it is owned or leased, including those that are located outside physical campus boundaries.
