University of Tasmania

The University of Tasmania welcomes and actively supports staff and students wishing to manage parenting responsibilities and their employment or study commitments.

The University is committed to fostering an inclusive culture which promotes equality, values diversity and maintains a working, learning and social environment in which the rights and dignity of all its staff and students are respected.

We provide staff with a variety of benefits that enable them to balance work with family responsibilities including:

  • A variety of flexible working options (formal and informal)
  • Paid parental leave (26 weeks)
  • Breastfeeding rooms on campuses
  • On-site childcare on a number of campuses

The University of Tasmania is proud to be an accredited Breastfeeding Friendly Workplace, having been successfully reaccredited every year since 2013. Women are welcome to breastfeed their child wherever they feel comfortable on our campuses.  In addition, facilities are also available for staff and students who need a private space to breastfeed/express milk.
