About University of Queensland

The University of Queensland (UQ) is one of Australia’s leading research and teaching institutions. We strive for excellence through the creation, preservation, transfer and application of knowledge. For more than a century, we have educated and worked with outstanding people to deliver knowledge leadership for a better world.

UQ is in the top 100 universities worldwide, measured through a number of major independent university rankings: the Academic Ranking of World Universities, Times Higher Education World University Rankings, QS World University Rankings and, Performance Ranking of Scientific Papers for World Universities. UQ is also the largest university in Queensland.

Campus information

  • St Lucia
  • Ipswich
  • Gatton 
  • Herston

Other UQ locations include teaching hospitals and health centres, veterinary science centres, agricultural science farms, marine research stations, physics research stations, seismograph stations and an underground mine.

Brisbane, is widely known as Australia's most liveable city. It is Australia's fastest-growing capital with a population of more than 1.7 million people and it offers a safe, friendly, multicultural environment. Students, staff, graduates and visitors enjoy a rich and diverse campus life on three major campuses at St Lucia in Brisbane, UQ Gatton (85 km west of Brisbane) and UQ Ipswich (43 km west of Brisbane). Each offers a distinctive community lifestyle, first-class facilities and a clean, safe and attractive environment for work, study and recreation


Students at UQ have three main accommodation options: 

  1. If you want to live on campus, arrange your accommodation ahead of time, have your meals catered for you and lots of support and activities at your fingertips, you should consider living in a Residential College. Places are available for the next intake.
  2. If you want to be a bit more independent (or are unsuccessful at securing a place in a College), but still want to have your accommodation arranged before you arrive, you could consider living in off-campus student housing with one of UQ's approved providers. This is self-catered, furnished accommodation designed for students and can be booked online from overseas.
  3. The third option is to book temporary accommodation such as a hotel or youth hostel and wait until you arrive in Brisbane to secure permanent accommodation. If you choose this option, you should plan to arrive in Brisbane at least two to three weeks before the start of Orientation, as it can take some time to find a suitable place and get settled in. This option offers the widest variety of choices and prices. You can find more information on the Accommodation Services website.
