From providing water refill stations all around campus, to hosting fun & interactive sustainability events through our Green Ambassador Program (GAP), to our new award-winning Warwick Solar Farm, UQ is committed to sustainability. UQ Sustainability is all about promoting and celebrating sustainability on and off campus.

This year in 2021 the UQ Sustainability Office is determined to create more spaces to meaningfully engage with our fantastic UQ community. There is a plethora of incredible efforts, initiatives, events, and facilities dedicated to sustainability at UQ. We want to ensure that the broader UQ community are aware of the fantastic work our 'greenie' staff and students are doing and provide opportunities to support and get involved

We have a number of sustainability themed events as part of this semester's Orientation Week & Connect Week. Make sure you register and don't miss out!

You can keep up to date with everything to do with sustainability by following us on Instagram (@uqsustainability), liking us on Facebook (UQ Sustainability Office) or visiting our website (
