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.
There are a number of off-campus options listed at http://www.uq.edu.au/student-services/accommodation/other-options
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
For more detailed information on parking at St Lucia Campus, and to view the St Lucia Campus map, visit the St Lucia Campus web pages at http://www.pf.uq.edu.au/parking/index.html
Parking guides are available from the Student Centres.
Unless you are a local resident, parking in local streets around the St Lucia campus is limited to 2 hours between 7am and 6pm from February to November.
ACSPRI accepts no responsibility for parking fines incurred by program participants.
