Student services

Our staff are prepared to deliver sessions virtually for students who do not need to attend campus. If you feel unwell, we ask that you change your appointment to phone, Skype or Zoom, or reschedule if you need to prioritise rest.

Housing services

Here's what you can expect from an on-campus provider:

  • immersion in the on-campus experience
  • unmatched convenience to the St Lucia campus
  • rooms can be pre-booked before you leave home
  • some residents will be from other universities, not just UQ.

Library services

At The University of Queensland Library, we connect you with the information, people, and resources you need, when you need them.

If you’re a UQ student or staff member, you’ll have access to one of the largest academic library collections in Australia – in fact 24/7 access to our electronic collections and many of our print collections.  

ICT services

We can help with IT issues online, including help with student passwords and issues accessing UQ systems and resources
