Student-led protests on campus

This page has been created to provide factual information about the student-led protest on Wednesday 24 July, the planned protest on Wednesday 31 July and concerns raised about UQ’s relationship with China.

The University has zero tolerance for violence and intimidation, which is why on 24 July our security staff at the St Lucia campus asked for police assistance to disperse protestors.

Safety is our number one priority and we want to ensure our students, staff and others can go about their activities on campus.

An investigation commenced last week into the circumstances that led to the unacceptable actions by a small number of individuals against our students and staff at the 24 July protest. We have offered support to students and staff who were affected.

Students requiring support should contact Student Services or telephone 1300 851 998.

We encourage anyone who has concerns about their personal safety, the safety of others, or possible criminal behaviour, to contact Queensland Police Service.
