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 face to face 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. Where appropriate, events will be moved to online.

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