I'm a student at UTS. I'll take a few shots around campus and add them to the article. Ideas include:

  • The Library
  • The concourse in Building 1
  • Humanities, DAB buildings

Can someone from Kuring-gai take a picture of the campus there?

I hope someone cleans up the trivia section of the page. I really dislike it. I'm a UTS person too but Wikipedia is an encyclopedia not an outlet for marketing. In some cases I believe some of the trivia bits can be incorporated into a History section eg pre-Tower days, the Hordern days etc. I'd do it in the future if someone doesn't fix it up since I've already added the Alumni section.

Wikipedia is an encyclopedia. Wikipedia is not a dictionary, soapbox, how-to guide, blog, billboard, fansite, resume, crystal ball, or censored. I took the liberty of removing the "Staff" and "Trivia" sections for awhile so that others would it improve it. The following sections were marked as {{Importance-s|date=March 2007}} and {{toomuchtrivia}}. Fddfred talk 06:38, 17 March 2007 (UTC)
Fddfred, you seem to have a vindictive agenda. Alumni and staff members are par for the course in university entries. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) 02:29, 4 April 2007 (UTC).

Fair use rationale for Image:Uts logo.gif[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Uts logo.gif is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

University of Technology, SydneyUniversity of Technology Sydney – The university has dropped the comma in its name. Reference: Coekon (talk) 22:22, 9 August 2015 (UTC)

  • Oppose. Just a styling issue for the organisation, important for slogans, banners, addresses (punctuation is discouraged when mailing). There are other similarly named universities, this is the one in Sydney. --SmokeyJoe (talk) 02:51, 17 August 2015 (UTC)
  • Support. Formal name of the university. SmokeyJoe's rationale doesn't make sense because it's never known as "the University of Technology"(that would trigger geographic naming conventions due to ambiguity) , it's always known as UTS. The Drover's Wife (talk) 07:42, 17 August 2015 (UTC)
