The University is a major centre for education, employment and research in Queensland and a significant asset to the City of Brisbane. It is close to the Brisbane’s CBD and growing inner-city populations in West End and Highgate Hill, and forms the southern node of an expanding knowledge precinct stretching from South Brisbane to the Princess Alexandra Hospital and Boggo Road. In the future it will be important for the campus to strengthen its links to its wider regional setting, in particular through public transport links via the Eleanor Schonell Bridge and Chancellors Place.

The University will continue its role as a resource for use by the wider community, including providing a range of sports and cultural venues.
