UPDATE: In light of the developing COVID-19 Queensland Government restrictions, regretfully Back to UQ will be postponed until further notice. We are so disappointed we won't be able to host you on Sunday, but look forward to being in touch with further details once confirmed. If you have any further queries, please contact the team on uqalumni@uq.edu.au.

You’re invited Back to UQ on Sunday 1 August – UQ's alumni homecoming. Coinciding with UQ Open Day, the day features celebrations, tours, talks, and the chance to reconnect with your university and your classmates.

Whether you have a close-knit cohort to catch-up with or are interested in visiting campus to see what's changed and what's new, Sunday 1 August will be an unmissable day of activities.

Here’s a taste of what’s on offer:

  • Free, alumni-exclusive campus history tours and research talks;
  • Chances to explore UQ’s cultural treasures at our Museums and Libraries;
  • Opportunities to visit your favourite historical buildings and cutting-edge new facilities;
  • Meet-up opportunities to connect with fellow alumni, including a networking event for LGBTQIA+ alumni.

We'll cap off the day with a ticketed afternoon cocktail celebration on the UQ Art Museum lawn. With a pop-up bar, BBQ, music, and some of UQ's most iconic buildings as our backdrop, it will be a soiree to remember.
