A gateway to a new campus experience

The development of a Student Hub in the heart of UQ’s campus will provide a game-changing student experience. A 28,000m2 purpose built complex that will include world-class teaching and learning space and the right environment to deliver contemporary integrated services and support for students.

A welcoming place that will support and connect the 49,000 staff, students and visitors that come to the St Lucia campus each day.

This adaptable and accessible precinct will reinvent the student experience and exceed present and future expectations – whether in four years or 50.

Employability and entrepreneurship showcase

To help our students enhance their employability, we will provide central and highly visible spaces for employability and entrepreneurship. Not only will this allow us to showcase and deliver our employability and entrepreneurship programs to a greater number of students, it will also enable collaboration between students, industry and alumni.

Events, socialising, activities

The Student Hub will create spaces where students can meet people and make friends, and access everything they need to live on St Lucia campus – a home away from home. Students will be able to attend classes, study, collaborate, relax and engage in a wide range of activities.

Retail
New retail, mostly food and beverage outlets, will be included in the design. These will increase choice and variety on St Lucia campus, improve day/night services, and offer bespoke options – delivered with best practice design, amenity and technology.
UQ Union
UQ have partnered with UQ Union to develop a vision for their 1800m2 space within the Student Hub. It will include work and meeting areas, flexible space for clubs and societies, advocacy services, safe zones, informal learning and event spaces.
Performance venue
The proposed Student Hub development will incorporate a new performance venue to continue our commitment to, and support of, student-led performance. Through our consultations with students, we know that this space will need to include facilities that allow for revues, theatre, dance and music performances, and rehearsal spaces.

An application for heritage listing of the entire Student Complex is currently being considered by the Queensland Heritage Council, under a process prescribed by the Queensland Heritage Act 1992. As a result, we have placed the Student Hub design process on hold, pending an outcome of the Queensland Heritage Council process.
