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

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

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

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


To be eligible for guaranteed accommodation you must:

  • be commencing as an international, regional or interstate student at UQ
  • have accepted your offer of study (including ICTE-UQ and IES Foundation Year)
  • be living alone (we don't provide guaranteed accommodation to couples or families).

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.
