St Lucia
Draft Site Development Plan

At The University of Queensland, we take great pride in our stunning St Lucia campus, renowned as one of the most attractive in Australia.

In an ever-changing environment, we must be able to adapt and adjust to meet the evolving needs of our students, collaborators and community partners.

We are developing a new Site Development Plan (SDP) for the St Lucia campus.

There have been significant changes to the way education and research are delivered since the previous SDP was approved in 2006.

The new SDP will help us ensure the campus continues to meet the needs of the University as we deliver unparalleled teaching, learning and research excellence.

At the same time, it will facilitate enhancement of the campus as a highly-connected hub for the St Lucia community and an asset that contributes to the economic well-being and liveability of the wider city of Brisbane.

The SDP is designed to guide development on land covered by the University’s Community Infrastructure Designation, and complements the St Lucia Campus Master Plan by identifying potential development sites and guiding design and land use.

UQ is committed to protecting our heritage and our magnificent riverside parklands, to respecting Indigenous peoples and adhering to sustainable practices throughout the SDP process.

The public consultation period for the proposed new St Lucia Site Development Plan (SDP) has now concluded. The Plan is currently being finalised with completion expected in late 2021.
