Getting to UQ

Just seven kilometres from Brisbane’s city centre, UQ St Lucia is considered one of the most beautiful university campuses in the world. Bounded by river on three sides, the 114-hectare site provides a perfect study, research and living environment. It's a vibrant mix of old sandstone buildings, modern architecture, parklands and lakes.


There is regulated, paid parking available for cars, motorcycles and scooters across the St Lucia campus. Find out more.


The St Lucia campus is serviced regularly by more than 10 bus routes. For further information phone TransLink on 13 12 30, or visit the TransLink website.


CityCats are a scenic and convenient way to get to and from the St Lucia campus, arriving every 15 minutes. Plan your journey.
