The friendships I have formed thus far are friendships for a lifetime, and I truly believe I would not have met the same diversity of people if I wasn’t at UQ.

There is always something going on, and it’s always a fun time. I strongly recommend for everyone thinking of starting at UQ to apply, it is one decision you certainly will not regret!

Living on campus is also convenient as I am only a short walk to the library, post office and classes. This means that instead of travel time, I can spend more time focusing on my studies.

If you are the sporting type or just enjoy keeping fit and healthy, there are lots of sports clubs you can join as well as free access to the UQ Res gym and lots of training programmes.
