University of Queensland, St Lucia Campus


On campus accommodation may be available at UQ through some of the colleges. Not all of them offer accommodation during the mid Semester break, so it is best to contact them directly. This is a link to a UQ web page that will link you to their websites. Many of them will have links to 'conference' or casual accomodation.


Other Accommodation options

There are several other options in St Lucia, Toowong and West End, which are connected to UQ by the CityCat ferry and several bus services. Toowong is also only a few minutes from the city by train. A web search of 'St Lucia accommodation Brisbane' should provide you with some options. It is also possible to stay in the CBD and enjoy a reasonable commute, particularly if staying close to a CityCat stop or near Roma St Station. UQ has some details about suburbs around the campus at this link.

Car Parking / Transport: 

The Brisbane City Council (CityCat) ferry service operates between the city (and beyond) and St Lucia. The ferry is a pleasant way to travel to campus and is also an effective way of commuting from areas such as Toowong and the city. The ferry stop at UQ is only a short walk from the Business School Precinct, where most ACSPRI courses will be run.

Buses between this stop and the City include the 411 route or 412 route. The second terminal is at "UQ Lakes", at the far east of the campus near Playing field 3, which is at the UQ end of the Eleanor Schonell Bridge, from here you can catch the 66 bus route, which calls at Roma Street Station and a number of other central destinations or route 192, which takes you to and from the City via the West End.
