Planning your day at UQ

Getting there

Our main campus is located in the suburb of St Lucia, seven kilometres from the Brisbane CBD, and easily accessible via a number of transport options.

Travelling to the St Lucia campus from the airport will take approximately 20-30 minutes via taxi (depending on traffic). This is often the best way to reach the St Lucia campus for your first meeting.
