This is your #UQLIFE

Your UQLife is more than just study. It encompasses a range of events, experiences and programs to keep you engaged, motivated and connected. Immerse yourself in O-Week, BLOOM Festival, Anywhere Theatre Festival, Week of Wellbeing and more. With events weekly, there is something for everyone.

Semester 1 is far from ordinary and with the global challenge that COVID-19 poses for our communities, we will ensure that our community can still come together physically and remotely.

This site has lots of information and links to the various resources and activities that you can participate in, regardless of whether you are able to come to campus.

What's on?

Every year on March 31st we celebrate International Transgender Day of Visibility (TDOV) as a way to honour and celebrate our transgender students, staff, friends and families.
Stand aside Ellen, back off Jimmy Fallon - UQLife is taking over! Join us LIVE on Facebook every Wednesday at 1pm for Let's Chat About... a weekly series where you get to ask all the questions you've been too afraid to ask.
The UQLife Virtual Village is a new initiative led by student volunteers and Alumni that aims to bring your everyday connections into one platform, where you can continue to live your everyday with limited impact. So we invite you all to join our village from Wednesday 1 April and start working on building those connections once again, and find confidence in your #uqlifeonline.
