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.
