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.
