UQ Ipswich offers students a unique learning environment, combining a tradition of quality education with a new and dynamic campus.

Only 45 minutes drive from UQ St Lucia, UQ Ipswich is the University’s newest campus having opened for teaching in February 1999.

Students benefit from a purpose-designed teaching space utilising the latest technology in teaching, course delivery and research infrastructure. UQ Ipswich delivers a modern suite of tailored and relevant programs, equipping graduates for lasting careers in a variety of professions.

The campus boasts a wealth of dedicated, state-of-the-art learning facilities. These include Building 8, which merges traditional library and student services with innovative technology to advance learning and research. UQ Ipswich’s student/computer ratio places it at the forefront of Australian tertiary education.

At this smaller campus, students enjoy greater access to teaching staff while teaching spaces enhance learning, with seminar and group learning rooms promoting personal interaction with staff and other students. Students enjoy a range of support, amenity, and recreational services, including a bookshop, cafés, a multipurpose court for playing tennis, basketball and netball, a sporting oval and a cardiogymnasium.

Scholarships for domestic and full degree international students

A range of accommodation options is available for students wanting to live in the region.
