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, UQ Theatre Festival, NAIDOC Festival and more. With events weekly, there is something for everyone.

We will ensure that our community can still come together on campus and online, as our global and UQ community continue to meet the challenges that COVID-19 poses..

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.
