This is your UQLife... online

We know that your UQ experience is about more than going to campus. UQLife is here to help you make connections, and gain experiences that will shape your future.

While the UQLife team are practicing social distancing and adhereing to the guidelines on gatherings with our on campus activities, we want to make sure that your UQLife online is just as vibrant and meaningful. Our team will be bringing you a range of new and innovative experiences that you can participate in virtually from home, and bringing you the best of what is already out there to help you to make and maintain connections with not just our UQ community, but the communities you are part of beyond UQ.

We will be regularly adding new experiences and opportunities to this page, so check back regularly, and follow us on Instagram and Facebook for the most up to date information.
