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. 

Offers of accommodation are made by Residential Colleges (on campus) and Approved Providers (off campus).


To be eligible for guaranteed accommodation you must:

  • be a commencing UQ student
  • 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.

How to apply

Applications for Semester 2, 2019 will open in May 2019.
