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 Semester breaks, 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 suburbs around the campus, St Lucia, Toowong and West End, which are connected to UQ by the CityCat river 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 (river ferry) stop or near Roma St Station (bus). Follow this link for information about getting to the St Lucia campus.


Otherwise you may be able to find a room or apartment via Airbnb or one of the many accommodation aggregator sites like or Just type in the suburb of St Lucia.

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.

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). 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. A journey planner is available at this link.


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