PRE-3: Institutional Boundary
A brief description of the institution’s main campus and other aspects of the institutional boundary used to complete this report:
UQ has 3 main campuses located within and in the surrounds of Brisbane City, in the state of Queensland, Australia.
St Lucia campus is UQ's main campus.
Situated on 114 hectares of Brisbane River-bound land, UQ’s main campus is a vibrant mix of majestic sandstone buildings and contemporary architecture, landscaped gardens and lakes. Fanning out from the heritage-listed Great Court, you’ll find modern teaching and research facilities, including laboratories, lecture theatres, and Queensland’s largest research library. The expansive grounds are also home to a variety of sporting facilities, museums, cafes, and those famous Jacaranda trees.
Gatton is UQ's rural campus, located in the Lockyer Valley 87 kilometres west of Brisbane city on over 1000 hectares, half way between Ipswich and Toowoomba. On this sprawling campus, which dates back to 1897, you’ll find world-class teaching and research facilities in agriculture, animals, veterinary science and the environment. It’s also a working farm, with more than 1000 hectares of dairy, pig, crop and grazing units, as well as post-harvest facilities and greenhouses. Gatton’s agricultural learning facilities sit against a backdrop of historical homesteads, sporting amenities, and community fruit and vegetable gardens.
UQ's Herston campus is a hub for health research. Herston is UQ’s core campus for clinical health teaching and research. Located just minutes from the Brisbane CBD, Herston is home to UQ’s Medicine and Public Health schools, the UQ Centre for Clinical Research, Oral Health Centre, and the research activities of the School of Nursing and Midwifery. UQ Herston shares premises with the Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital and the QIMR Berghofer Medical Research Institute, allowing students and visitors to rub shoulders with leading health researchers, academics and professionals.
Other locations include satellite sites for teaching, research and other facilities in Brisbane and Queensland.These include Heron Island Research Station, Moreton Bay Research Station, Julius Kruttschnitt Mineral Research Centre, Medical clinical units and teaching hospitals, Pharmacy Australia Centre of Excellence, Pinjarra Hills Research Facility, Long Pocket site and more sites.
