UQ College community living

Principal’s Message

For updates on our response to COVID-19, please go to Student Resident Information

Grace is a women’s student residence located on the western edge of the St Lucia Campus of The University of Queensland. If you are looking for UQ student accommodation on-campus at St Lucia, Brisbane, Queensland then we have a residential community steeped in a rich 50 year history. We offer accommodation packages that support our female cohort of undergraduate and postgraduate residents. You are free to be yourself at Grace College.

Peace be with you!

The greeting of peace is an ancient one shared by many faiths and traditions. It is one of welcome, hospitality and support. That’s what we’re on about in Grace Student Community.

A Safe Community

We want our community to be a safe, welcoming and nurturing place for women studying at university in Brisbane; and especially at The University of Queensland St Lucia Campus. We want you to feel like you belong so that you are empowered to achieve.

A Message from our Founders

The founders of Grace give us a glimpse into their hopes and dreams for us by the choice of our motto: “My grace is sufficient” (2 Corinthians 12:9). An early Christian worker penned these words to share an important insight with emerging communities: the support of someone beyond yourself means that you are capable of so much more. The apostle Paul discloses the struggles he’s had and how the awareness of the presence of God’s graciousness and hospitality enabled him to keep going through it all.

That’s what we’d like to do for you! We’d like to offer you the space and support that you need to succeed in your studies and become the person you are. We’d also like to give you the chance to be part of a community that will do that for others too. #gofarjustasyouare #gofarwithgrace

A Diverse Community

Our residents come from many different backgrounds. They offer and accept the greeting of peace in many languages and out of many traditions. We don’t all believe the same things or have the same gifts and talents. We do all live in a community that seeks to care for, support and encourage one another as we make our respective ways in our complex, challenging world. We believe that you can meet the challenges that are before you. We want you to be a part of a community that believes that too and empowers one another to do just that!

How about you?

Together we are the community of Grace. Will you accept our greeting of welcome, hospitality and support, and become a part of offering it to others too?

Grace and peace,
Revd. Dr. Anita Monro
