Information Hub: explore study and life at UQ

The Information Hub is where you will find all the Open Day booths. Our booths are sorted by study and interest areas.

Download our event program and start planning which booths you will visit on the day.


In each booth, you’ll find short on-demand videos that you can watch at any time during the event.

There are booths for specific program information where you will get info about your course and study options, as well as booths for the student life part of UQ – sports, accommodation options, ATAR advice, health and wellbeing. We have over 110 booths covering more than 120 topics!

You may also find:

  • Q&A videos between our teachers and students
  • staff and current students who are ready to answer your questions and help you navigate your options
  • useful downloads you can save for later
  • a space to take notes while you chat – you can export these at the end of your visit so you don’t forget anything!

Live chat

You’ll have a few different options for interacting with our staff and students. We have a video chat option if you want to talk face-to-face, or if you prefer a text conversation without video, you can choose this option.

Live sessions

We want Open Day to be as flexible as possible, so we have made most of our content on-demand, so you can watch it at any time during the event – pause, rewind, rewatch, even skip to the chapters that interest you most.

Our live sessions are events that you will need to tune into at a specific time. Some things are just better live!
