Most of the time UTS events are announced on the social media platforms of UTS, like the Facebook page or the Instagram account, so give those a like/follow!

Regularly there is a Free brekkie for UTS students offered by the Bluebird Brekkie Bar every...

  • Tuesday from 8:30am to 11am at Haymarket’s Moot Courtyard

  • Wednesday from 8:30am to 11am at the Tower Building Foyer.

With hot coffee and the good mood of the friendly workers you will have a good start into your early day at uni.

If you have classes until late at night, the Night Owl Noodle Bar is perfect for you. After a long day in classes and a lot of studying a hot bowl of noodles is the best way to end you day. You can get your free noodles on Thursdays from 5pm till 7:30pm in the Tower Building Foyer.
