About LiveUQ

UQ St Lucia’s on-campus accommodation consists of 10 Residential Colleges that are home to over 3,000 students from Australia and overseas studying at Brisbane universities. 

What is a Residential College?

Aside from the convenience of having every university facility and service only minutes away, there are other great advantages of living at a Residential College:

  • Fully catered accommodation

  • Supportive staff and secure premises

  • Academic tutorial programs and peer group support

  • Community service opportunities

  • Opportunities to form friendships and enhance your networks

  • Active sporting, cultural and social life

  • College scholarships, prizes and bursaries.

Life at a Residential College complements your university studies, not only academically, but also socially, culturally and in the sporting arena. Residential Colleges offer a real student experience.

The Colleges

Colleges offer you the opportunity to enhance your student experience through living a well-rounded university life:

  • Hone your academic skills.

  • Pursue your sporting and cultural interests — everything from athletics to water polo, chess to Choralfest, rowing to rugby…

  • Participate in inter-college activities

  • Try out something new in a supportive environment

  • Form lasting friendships

  • Build your professional network with students studying everything from medicine to music, economics to engineering.

  • Develop your leadership potential, and create change.

Once you become a resident of a College, you are part of that College community for life.

Looking forward to catching up with Sydney folk

At the recent Oceania Athletic Championships held in Townsville, our very own Cromwellian, Ben Gibson, placed 2nd in the U/20 Men’s 800m.
Ben’s impressive performance off very little actual running training, due to an ankle injury he carried right up to a few weeks before the championships, says a lot about his talent and resilient character. We look forward to watching Ben progress through the athletic ranks and be rewarded for all of his hard work and dedication. #crommieticker #cromwellcollegeuq_official #bengibson #athleticsImage attachment
