JASS is the resident Japanese cultural society at UTS.

The society celebrates Japanese culture and cross-cultural friendship between Japan and Australia. The society is for anyone who loves Japan as much as we do – and we hope to continue involving you and the rest of UTS.

The society was founded in 2004 and since conception, we have been working hard to host countless events to promote cultural awareness between the two nations, making it THE SOCIETY, a staple for cultural exchange for UTS students and fellow inter-university peers.
