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.

St John's College UQ
Wellness Week | Taking care of yourself is important and our Wellness Week team convenor has started off the week that way. Residents were treated to some ‘puppy’ patting time. Research has shown that caring for an animal can lower stress levels. There are loads of great events planned this week so keep an eye out. Thanks to @womenscollege for sharing their cute puppy with us.

Today is the International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia, and Transphobia (IDAHOBIT), and we are celebrating with lots of rainbows at lunch! 🌈

Its so important that young women feel supported, included, and safe and were so proud that were able to show our support for our LGBT residents and staff. Here at Grace, you can go far - just as you are. 🏳️‍🌈💜 #prideindiversity #gracecollegeuq #UQIDAHOBIT2019Image attachmentImage attachment

I am too so disappointed. If there are LGBT members then yes they should be accepted etc. But to celebrate like this is so far from the truth of the bible which Grace used to stand by.

I'm so disappointed to see this. You've left your founding principles.
