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.

Cromwell College, The University of Queensland

Sad Farewell to 50 Valedictorians

The Valedictory Dinner was held on Tuesday 15 October. The whole college with many invited guests joined to farewell 50 very special people who have made a most significant and positive difference during their three years at Cromwell College.

Guest Speaker was former Cromwellian Rosanna O’Neill (2012-2013). The prestigious Cromwell College Medal (the highest award bestowed by the College) was awarded to Callum Breetzke (Gold Coast) for his outstanding contribution to Cromwell College over his three years.

Ross Switzer (Principal) delivered a fitting farewell to the Valedictorians who responded with a song. Tears flowed during the Valedictory Video prepared by Valedictorian Oscar Crisp (Yass NSW) which captured three amazing years of Cromwell life for those departing. More photos and a full story will appear in our December issue of COCA News. #coca #cromwellcollegeuq_official #valedictorians2019
