University of Queensland, St Lucia Campus

Accommodation: 

On campus accommodation may be available at UQ through some of the colleges. It is best to contact them directly. There is a list here: http://liveuq.edu.au/the-colleges/

There are a number of off-campus options listed at http://www.uq.edu.au/student-services/accommodation   (go to the short term accomodation link)

There are several other options in 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 'Toowong', 'accommodation' and '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.

Car Parking / Transport: 

Ferry
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 Precinct, where most ACSPRI courses will be run.

The latest updates on the ferry service can be found through http://jp.translink.com.au/travel-information/network-information/ferries/T/citycat

 

Bus 

Brisbane City Council buses stopping at UQ take you to one of two bus terminals. One is at Chancellor's Place (near the J. D. Story Building). 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. A journey planner is available here.

 

Bicycle
The University of Queensland (St Lucia) is ideally accessed by bicycle, with a safe riverside bicycle path connecting St Lucia campus to the city. You can follow the roads or use combinations of roads and bike paths. Remember too, that bikes may be taken on City Cat river ferries. There is a University Bicycle Shop in the St Lucia Campus Union Complex and bike parking facilities are available.

 

Taxi
Taxi ranks are located on the roundabout at Chancellors Place, and in University Drive, at St Lucia Campus.

 

Car Parking
Paid parking operates on the St Lucia campus from 7:00am to 9:00pm every weekday. Short-term parking is available in central locations, and long-term casual parking is available in the two multi-level carparks off Sir Fred Schonell Drive, at Parking Station 1 (opposite the Athletics Centre), and in the Warehouse carpark (entry from Walcott Street). The two multi-level carparks off Sir Fred Schonell Drive would be the closest convenient parking to the Winter Program.

ACSPRI accepts no responsibility for parking fines incurred by program participants.

Venue and Timetable: 

The Program will be held at the University of Queensland, St Lucia Campus. Most courses will take place in the Business Precinct (Blds 35 & 39A) near Blair Drive and Campbell Road. A campus map can be found here.

 

Exact course locations can change at the last minute participants of all courses are asked to meet at the Program Welcome. The Program Welcome will run from 9am until roughly 9.30am, before we break up into course groups. Breaks will occur daily at 10.30-11.00, 12.30-1.30 and 3.00-3.30. Sessions will begin at 9am and end at 5pm each day except courses will finish by 3pm on Friday.

 

The Program Welcome will take place at 9am on the Monday of both weeks. It
typically runs for less than half an hour, after which the various course
groups break up and make their way to their respective classrooms or computer
labs.
