UniSQ expands to new Brisbane hub

The University of Southern Queensland (UniSQ) has opened a new three-level corporate education and engagement hub in the Brisbane CBD.

UniSQ Brisbane – located at 293 Queen Street – will provide short course programs delivered by university experts in partnership with industry leaders from early 2024.

The venue includes modern teaching and learning spaces, community lounge, and a ground-level coffee shop.

Alumni of the University, including graduates from the Springfield campus, will be free to make use of the lounge.

Reflecting the University’s growth strategy, Vice-Chancellor Professor Geraldine Mackenzie said the move into Brisbane would meet the needs of business and industry.

“The opening of UniSQ Brisbane was a significant moment in the history of our university – adding a city presence to our existing campuses at Toowoomba, Springfield and Ipswich,” Professor Mackenzie said.

“With Brisbane the fastest growing city in Australia and the Olympics in sight, there is no better time to establish a home for UniSQ in the CBD.”

The evolving nature of work, hastened by rapid technological changes, has led to a growing demand for opportunities to upskill and re-skill in corporate leadership, management, and technology skills, which UniSQ Brisbane will offer initially.

The facility will then expand to offer subjects such as cyber security, data visualisation, digital health transformation, and decarbonisation strategy.
