Friends of Antiquity, a society sponsored jointly by the Discipline of Classics and Ancient History and the Alumni Friends of the University of Queensland, is a group of people who believe that learning should not be confined to the classroom. The group provides an informal social environment in which all lovers of history, art and literature can gather to share their enjoyment of antiquity with like-minded enthusiasts.

The society is open to people from all walks of life, from within and outside the University of Queensland community.
