Contact: digital editions

Each month the Contact team send out a digital edition to our UQ alumni and community! Read insightful and interactive features about our community, current students, campus news and stay in touch with what’s happening at one of the world’s leading universities.

To reduce waste, the printed edition will no longer be produced once a year. You can download previous editions as PDFs here.
