The Conservatorium offers the music programs within the School of Creative Arts, a School of the University of Tasmania. Due to its central location in the city the Conservatorium has been able to vitalise and enrich efforts to link music-making with the wider community. Facilities include a 172-seat auditorium, a well-equipped recording studio complex, computer laboratory, research rooms, a percussion room, music library, lecture hall and rehearsal rooms. The library holds manuscript compositions of Stuart Challender. Instrumental holdings include a Bill Bright harpsichord, a Stuart & Sons concert grand piano and a set of African percussion instruments. There are close links with the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra which has also funded an annual scholarship to encourage talented musicians to study at graduate level in orchestral studies at the Conservatorium, and with the Aboriginal Centre for the Performing Arts. The Conservatorium organises a University Connections Program to identify talented senior high school students and give them access to Conservatorium classes in their year 12. The AMEB in Tasmania is administered from the Conservatorium.
