    Ideas from previous thread...
    Link: http://community.boredofstudies.org/...-near-uts.html

    • eat : broadway,ogalos,oporto,market city, and of course maccas,kfc,bk outside the station.
    • food: mai thai, inside bar broadway. six dollar thai lunches. if you're poor, fried rice from alice's on level 3. also, there's a cool sushi place near the maccas opp. railway square. they have specials from about 4 or 5 onwards.
    • Market City, Darling Harbour, Chinatown, Broadway, sit in Victoria Park (if you need to see grass, which is so lacking at UTS!), jump on a bus outside UTS and you will be in the middle of the city in minutes... there you can check out Pitt St Mall, QVB, Myer etc... or catch the bus to circular quay/the rocks and take in the scenery... pancakes on the rocks....
    • market city...or sussex centre if you want. normal chinatown stuff (like superbowl). errrmmmmmm yum cha! how can i forget! lol thats a great place to eat but i havent been during uni...lack of $$$.
    • The lansdowne is the best bargain around broadway!!! I can't believe I didn't say it before!!! It's opposite Victoria Park... not on Broadway but just off Broadway on City Road so really close. They have $5 lunch and dinner meals. You can have steak with a sauce and chips or mash potato... or chicken, or fish, or nachos and there are a couple of other things too... it's really good value. You have to buy a drink with your meal though, so all up you can get lunch/dinner and a drink (soft drink, beer or house wine) for $8.50 which is pretty reasonable. You couldn't buy steak and cook it yourself for that cheap.
    • Yeah Pearl Milk Tea at Easy Way and Happy Cup!
    • Everyone must have a slice of the Choco Dome cake at Fioriani's in Darling Harbour (on the outside strip of Harbourside).
    • Yeah, they have a gym on Harris Street, Broadway. Don't think there are any other places.
    • Union Fitness Centre


    Yeah i totally agree..there are heaps more nice places to eat,relax,and chill out even though UTS has only limited acess paths..you can still find a place at city.

    Re: The UTS 'Places to Eat + Things to Do' Thread

    Hey so, during gaps between lectures/tutorials, what do students usually do?
    Have lunch, hang-out? Are there areas where students (of certain courses/faculties) can lounge around? Oh, and what's the Loft?

    Thanks

    The Loft is the bar that's sort of tucked away next to the Tower. It's much better than The Glasshouse imo.

    There are places in buildings you can hang out in (eg, you can usually find me on level 3 of Building 4). Most students don't hang around campus during breaks though. Depending on how long my break is, I walk out to somewhere in the city, stay at uni, or even go home if I have a 6 hour break like I did in semester 1 last year >_> (I live about half an hour away from the city)

    If it's a 30 minute gap, people tend to hang around the uni. Not too much time to do anything significant-- 1hour + and people usually leave... unless they want to catch up on work. Some people will get Maccas/KFC/Subway etc in short breaks between classes since they're all close to UTS, but getting real lunch in Chinatown or up at the Broadway shopping centre is possible if you have more time. A few of my friends have popped over to Star City to eat there in longer breaks =D

    There aren't many faculty specific lounge areas. IT students (technically first-year IT students, but my PIN has worked on the door for 2 years now) have access to a room in Building 10, but it's never overly crowded. Other than that, most areas are free-range. You could lounge around in most of the buildings, as long as the area is not staff/postgrad only. It's just a matter of scouting out an area-- which, unfortunately, can be difficult at many points in the day.

    You said it pyro. I totally hate areas where its so overly crowded and you're desperately finding a seat while everyone looks at you and then you are awkwardly forced to sit in between to people...

    Thanks for the info, guys! What's the glasshouse?
    Like when I was at tafe, there were places to sit for lunch/areas to sit as a group (outdoors). Is there many spots like that at UTS?

    My biggest gap this semester is 2 hours

    The Glasshouse is another bar on campus, downstairs in the Tower. There's another bar in Building 5 as well.

    Last time I was at The Glasshouse, the beer we got was flat o_O

    And yes, there are plenty places outside you can hang around. Such as the backyard (or Alumni Green as they insist on calling it). But because of construction, part of it is closed until 2011. They've blocked off access to the science building from that side too... :/

    You can take some time during your breaks to look around the uni

    The Glasshouse is generally seedy, dingy and yuck. That beer was horrible, and it wasn't the first time I've had dodgy beer there either!

    I would steer clear.

    The Loft is ok, but tends to be fairly pricey unless you go during happy hour/happy cocktail hour (which are NOT held at the same time)
    Also if you sit inside the chairs are really tall, which is OK but not all that comfortable after a while.

    Thanks again Looking forward to March!

    Another question, sorry: Where's building 5? I've looked at the map on the UTS website numerous times, but I can't see CB05! I can only see CB01-CB04 and CB06-CB10...

    Yeah, I think I'll have lunch close by or stay on campus

    Re: The Glasshouse. I have to agree with some of the above comments. Why go to a very bad bar with stale and a poor selection of beer when you can just walk across the road to the Broadway Bar. Not saying that Broadway Bar is quality either, but pretty much everything is better than the glasshouse. UTS needs to set its priorities right and have a bar upgrade above those master plan developments they have running at the moment.
