UQ Brisbane City is a custom-built learning and meeting space located in the heart of Brisbane’s CBD, which blurs the boundary between university campus and contemporary workplace.

Located across three floors of the heritage-listed 293 Queen Street, the University’s newest site is a unique space where students, alumni, industry and government can create, connect and innovate.

Our spaces are designed with your business needs in mind and include an executive boardroom, an exclusive executive lounge, high-tech meeting rooms, small private rooms and an open-air terrace.
