UQ St Lucia’s on-campus accommodation consists of 10 residential colleges that are home to over 2,500 students from Australia and overseas. UQ Gatton accommodates 436 students on-campus in the Halls of Residence. 

Living on campus can assist you in making a smooth transition to university. The colleges are located within easy walking distance of all university facilities and provide academic support, social, cultural and sporting activities and the opportunity to build networks and friendships that will last a lifetime. Most residential colleges provide full catering for undergraduate students and either full or some self-catering options for postgraduate students.

The cost of living on campus varies between colleges. You should contact the colleges directly to discuss costs. 

Aside from the convenience of having every university facility and service only minutes away, there are other great advantages living at a residential college:

Supportive staff and secure premises

• Academic tutorial programs and peer group support

• The opportunity to meet other students

• An active sporting, cultural and social life, and

• College scholarships, prizes and bursaries.

Life at a residential college aims to complement university life, not only academically, but also in the cultural, sporting and social fields. 

Associate Members Program:  The Associate Members Program delivers some key aspects of the College experience for students of UQ who are not living at a College, but are interested in the academic, networking, mentoring and social aspects of College life. Visit each College website for details.
