COVID-19 advice

We understand that this is a worrying time for many in our community. We want to assure our staff and students that there are teams across UQ working as quickly as possible to respond to the situation as it evolves, and plan for other possibilities.

This page provides advice and information for UQ staff and students. We would encourage you to check this frequently as it will be updated regularly.

We ask that everyone adheres to the advice from Government to slow the spread of the virus.
