Student Affairs Division

The Student Affairs Division falls within the DVC-A portfolio, which brings together central units that provide operational, corporate, and pastoral support for all aspects of the student lifecycle. The Division is a key driver in enhancing the UQ student experience, and retention, success, and employability. It has two operational arms: the Student Services Directorate, and the UQ Student Employability Centre.

The objective of the Student Services Directorate is to provide a range of services and support functions that enhance the student experience and assist in ensuring student success.

The current initiatives run by Student Services fall into a number of areas:

  • Advice Teams | The focus is on enabling student success through providing general and specialist support including accommodation, disability and inclusion, general welfare and international student advice.
  • Learning Development Team | The focus is on supporting student success through online, group and one to one initiatives to enhance academic and learning skills for students.
  • Counselling Team | The focus is on providing an opportunity for enrolled students to access professional counselling so that they may better develop and fulfil their personal, academic and professional potential.
  • Student Experience Teams | The focus is on delivering projects that help students make connections and partnerships that enhance their experience at UQ. The work of this team will provide opportunities for students to build a sense of belonging and support within UQ.

Services are delivered across the St. Lucia, Gatton and Herston campuses. Information about the Directorate may be accessed on the Student Services web site at http://www.uq.edu.au/student-services
