The benefits of living on campus are endless. From an instant support network of like-minded residents, to top-class facilities and a plethora of academic and special events - St Leo’s residents can literally drop off their bags and start the semester.
It’s like living at home, but better and St Leo’s welcomes young men to make it their home away from home. Unlike the other colleges at UQ, St Leo’s residents have parking included, which is a huge convenience within the bustling St Lucia suburb.
When you choose to live at UQ’s only men’s college, you’ll be able to enjoy all the conveniences and comforts of the central location. Situated along the Brisbane River, the college is only a few kilometres from the city.
The University of Queensland itself is arguably the most beautiful campus in Australia with its buildings complemented by lakes, trees and wildlife. Transport options are dotted across the 114-hectare site but within 250 meters of St Leo’s front door.
On your doorstep are cycling, scooter and walking tracks, parks and cafes, restaurants and shopping options. The Brisbane river winds past St Lucia allowing easy access via the CityCat (water ferries), as well as frequent bus and train services, meaning the cost-effective option of public transport is always available.
A UQ Sport Lifestyle Passport is a great way for Leo’s residents to access the University’s pool, athletics track, track and field equipment, squash and tennis courts, and multiple ovals at no extra cost.
St Leo’s residents can also take full advantage of the services offered by the University of Queensland including social and fundraising clubs; arts, music, culture and sporting clubs; and counselling and healthcare services which are available to all students. St Leo’s and UQ offer a safe and enjoyable environment.
