Events

Whether you are studying at one of our campuses, or studying online, your UQLife is what you make it!

The UQLife team are proud to present a range of events across all our campuses and online platforms to help you to engage and connect with others, enhance your UQ experience and help you to feel part of the UQ Community.

If you are studying from overseas, many of our online events happen on UQ websites and across our social accounts on Facebook and Instagram and you may need to access these sites with a Virtual Private Network. Find out about UQ's VPN.
