UQ offers guaranteed accommodation to new students who are commencing studies at our St Lucia or Herston campuses. 

UQ guaranteed accommodation helps you to secure your accommodation before you arrive in Brisbane. Our accommodation providers reserve a guaranteed number of rooms so you can easily compare, choose and apply for the best accommodation for you. 

Rooms are available in our on-campus residential colleges and through off-campus UQ approved providers. 

Guaranteed accommodation is available to students commencing in Semester 1 or Semester 2.

If you are an international student, you must be at least 18 years old at the time of taking the place of residence. If you are under 18, refer to our Under 18 Supervision Program.
