Ipswich-based UQ Students
The University of Queensland (UQ) and the University of Southern Queensland (USQ) have made arrangements for the future of the Ipswich Campus and the transfer to USQ occurred on 7 January 2015.
UQ will continue to have access to the Campus during a two-year teach-out period in 2015 and 2016 to enable most students currently enrolled in Ipswich-based programs to complete their study with UQ at the Ipswich Campus. All UQ students involved in the teach-out period will have access to the USQ Ipswich Library.
The Library is located in Building H and entry is from Level 2.
Until the beginning of Semester 1 on 2 March 2015, Library opening hours are:
|Monday to Friday||8:00am to 5:00pm|
Semester 1 opening hours from 2 March 2015 will be:
|Monday to Thursday||8:00am to 7:00pm|
|Friday||8:00am to 5:00pm|
|Sunday||1:00pm to 5:00pm|

Access to other UQ Collections
UQ students studying at Ipswich during the teach-out period will have access to all collections from other UQ Libraries by placing a hold on an item. Holds can be requested by selecting the Place a Hold option once the item has been identified in UQ Library Search - see the Search Help page for more information on using UQ Library Search. Requested items will be delivered to the USQ Library for pick-up.
Books and other materials can be returned through the chutes inside Building H on Level 2, next to the Student Centre desk. There is an after-hours return chute at the entrance to Building H which is accessible when the building is closed.
