In light of the developing COVID-19 situation, The University of Queensland has taken important steps to ensure the health and wellbeing of our students, staff, alumni, partners and broader community.

UQ has made a decision to cancel all University events unless they are critical to teaching or research. This includes student, academic and public events on and off-campus until the end of June 2020.

Our thoughts are with all of you managing the consequences of the virus during this unprecedented time.
