Campus Tours


Visit Queensland's first university

You don't need to be a student at UQ to understand why we all love it here.
Join a campus tour to check out our facilities, talk to current students and see firsthand what we're all about.



St Lucia campus

Just seven kilometres from the city centre and surrounded by the Brisbane River, UQ St Lucia is one of Australia’s most beautiful university campuses.

St Lucia’s beautiful sandstone architecture, parklands and lakes encompass world-class teaching and research facilities.

The campus has landscaped grounds, three lakes, an aquatic centre, tennis courts, eight athletics ovals with a 600-seat grandstand, and facilities for elite rowing.

To compliment your tour, choose from English conversation or a lecture with one of the Universities lecturing staff in areas such as:

  • Australian Wildlife and Ecology
  • An Introduction to Australia
  • Multiculturalism and Diversity in Australia
  • Moreton Bay Marine Life
  • Future Study Paths to UQ
