Grace College is a fully-catered residential community designed specifically for the needs of women university students. Located at the St Lucia Campus of The University of Queensland (UQ), Grace College welcomes undergraduate and postgraduate students into the life of the College. Our student accommodation provides a home in Brisbane for female tertiary students. Women of many faith traditions and worldviews, cultures, ethnicities and nationalities enrich Grace College’s common life with more than one-third of our residents coming from outside Australia.

The rooms are spacious; the atmosphere is friendly, nurturing and supportive; and the opportunities for personal and leadership development are extensive. Vibrant programs cover all facets of our residents’ lives: academic, sporting, cultural, social, community service, sustainability, pastoral care, personal wellbeing, community development and spirituality. The emphasis within these programs is on peer support, networking and self-management with the support of dedicated and experienced staff. Residents pursue a wide range of degrees across the full range of faculties at UQ. Places are also available for QUT and Griffith Southbank students. The College is auspiced by The Uniting Church in Australia (Qld Synod) and The Presbyterian Church of Queensland.
