Make the most of your time on the ground.
Where to eat
Our first mini-series covers one of the most important parts of your UTS experience; food. Learn about offerings all over campus in this three-part special.
Hello and welcome to “On The Ground”, a series covering all of the essentials of life as a UTS FASS student. For our first episodes, we’re diving into the most critical part of your university experience. Food.
As a FASS student many of your classes are spread across campus, so it pays to know the closest source of deliciousness. Today we’re covering on-campus food on the Northern End of Campus, near the Goods Line.
If you’re around Building 5A, The Hub will cover any chewing gum, sandwich or sweet needs.
Down towards 5C, you can find the Art of Food, a prime source of pasta, pastries and perfect coffee to get you through those long tutorials.
Nearby in building 8, you’ll find Cafe80 tucked on the bottom floor. Serving breakfast, lunch, dinner and drinks, it is the perfect venue for post-class relaxation.
Check back soon as we head back towards the tower and explore what’s on offer.
How to meet people
Knowing how to make friends on-campus can be a difficult task, but we’ve made it simple with our Societies and Social Life mini-series. Find your crowd and learn how to get involved.
Hello and welcome back to On the Ground, the FASS student’s guide to a life sweeter than Zack & Cody’s. Today we begin our quest for friendship, starting off a mini-series on UTS’ FASS-related societies and clubs. Comms students listen up, you’re up first with UTSoC.
Hey, my name is Calvin and I am the President of the UTS Society of Communications.
UTSoC is a faculty-based society, and we hold a lot of events aimed towards Communications students. So a lot of the events that we might put on are: First Year Camp, Careers Workshops, Communications Ball, Industry Panels and a whole lot more. You don't have to be a Communications student, there's something for everyone.
Some of the highlights of 2019 were holding our First Year Camp. First Year Camp is a whole lot of fun, it's towards the beginning of the year and if you don't know anyone that's perfect for you because you can make most of your friends.
One of the recommendations I would make for you to start off your journey here at UTS is joining our Mentor, Mentee program: Big Orange, Little Orange. And that is a way to make friends, have a mentor to help you through your subjects, and also to guide you through your social life, so to speak.
The yearly membership gives you exclusive access to discounts, exclusive content and even Industry Connections. And if you want to find out more about UTSoC, chuck us a Like on Facebook. Otherwise, just give us an email through firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll see you around soon!
You heard it folks, if you want to meet some fun and fantastic people from your degree, head on over to UTSoC. Stay tuned for coverage of some other killer FASS clubs.
Where to find support
When you need help making sense of Uni life, never fear, On The Ground is here! Our Student Services mini-series covers who to talk to and where to go when you need a hand.
Hello and Welcome back to “On the Ground”, your source of need-to-know info for life as a UTS FASS student. Today we’re going to be starting a new mini-series on UTS support services, starting off with HELPS, the assessment experts.
HELPS are an English and Academic literacy support group dedicated to assisting UTS Undergraduate and Postgraduate students alike. They provide a number of resources for students including 1:1 assignment advice, workshops based around academic and English skills, as well as U:PASS sessions for the most difficult of subjects.
Students that work with HELPS have found that they’re more productive and efficient with their study time, feel less embarrassed about asking questions or not knowing content, and are able to better understand their subject material.
You can come and see them between 12-3pm in Building 1, Level 5, or shoot them an email at email@example.com at any time. If you have any questions about how to tackle assessments, write, present, or even reference, don’t hesitate to go and see them. There are no dumb questions, and there will always be a friendly face to help out.
HELPS. When you need somebody. HELPS. Not just anybody, HELPS. You know I need someone…
