Students at UQ have three main accommodation options:

Guaranteed Accommodation

If you are a new regional, interstate and international student the university  can guarantee you a place at one of our approved accommodation providers or residential colleges before you arrive in Brisbane.

If you want to live on campus, arrange your accommodation ahead of time, have your meals catered for you and lots of support and activities at your fingertips, you should consider living in a Residential College. Spaces at the Colleges are limited, so you are not guaranteed a place. It's best to apply early, but some Colleges may still have places available closer to the start of the semester..

Colleges at UQ

Living on campus can assist you in making a smooth transition to university. The colleges are located within walking distance of all university facilities and provide academic support, social, cultural and sporting activities.

St Lucia campus

UQ Colleges offer a lifestyle that only on-campus living and established communities can bring.  Students must submit an additional application form via the UQ Colleges website.


South Bank

Come home to UniLodge. The  brand new South Bank apartments offer first class accommodation matched with an amazing residential life programme.

If you want to be a bit more independent (or are unsuccessful at securing a place in a College), but still want to have your accommodation arranged before you arrive, you should consider living in off-campus student housing. This is self-catered, furnished accommodation designed for students and can be booked online from overseas.

The third option is to book temporary accommodation wait until you arrive in Brisbane to secure permanent accommodation. If you choose this option, you should plan to arrive in Brisbane at least two to three weeks before the start of Orientation, as it can take some time to find a suitable place and get settled in. This option offers the widest variety of choices and prices. You can find more information on the Accommodation Services website.
