UTS Library

Come and play new board games at UTS Library

Did you know board games are good for you?
In an increasing non-social and digital age apparently there are many reasons why board games can have positive health benefits; they are social and welcoming, they are analog and help us build new skills, they are fun and can help us unwind. 

UTS Library has six new board games to keep you occupied this Autumn. The Games Room is a shared space that supports the scholarly study of gaming for all UTS faculties while offering a place for students to take a study break. Gather up your mates, head to the Library and choose a game you'd like play. You can use our games in the Library's Games Room on Level 3 or take home on a 7-day loan. Game sets are available for borrowing from the Enquiries & Loans Desk on Level 2.

Try out a new game or challenge your friends to one of the classics. A list of the new Board Games in our collection are outlined below.
