Regional Roadshow logo on purple topographical map background

As a university, we are driven by our passion for Queensland – its people, its landscape and its innovation.

In addition to the 54,900 students currently enrolled at UQ, almost 60% of UQ’s 300,000-strong global alumni community are based right here on our doorstep, in Queensland.

UQ’s Regional Roadshow aims to celebrate our students, alumni and diverse partners across the state and the impact they have in their local communities.

From August to November 2021, UQ will visit Toowoomba, the Gold Coast, Maryborough and the Sunshine Coast to listen and learn from local communities to discover more ways UQ can foster the growth, health and prosperity of communities across Queensland.
