CQUniversity Response to COVID-19 (Coronavirus)
CQUniversity is working hard to respond to events related to COVID-19 (Coronavirus) and is doing everything we can to support domestic and international students.
In these challenging and unsettling times, philanthropy is essential to help and bring hope to those who need it most. We continue to raise vital funds to support CQUniCares, to be able to provide vital financial assistance to those affected.
Many students and their families have lost employment, are struggling financially and emotionally, and are facing food and housing insecurity.
While we are making support available to all students, we are particularly aware of the vulnerable status of many of our International students, who are unable to return home. We are continuing to connect with these students during these challenging times, to ensure they are aware of and benefit from the support initiatives already available or underway:
- Providing reduced study load and payment plan options for student fees
- Calling all international students to connect them with our support services;
- Adjusting our service delivery, including online drop in sessions and support staff available on campuses;
- Delivering care packages to students required to self-isolate (including laptops to some of our new students);
- Connecting students with local representative community groups;
- Awarding one-off emergency cash grants to students identified as most vulnerable.
We can do more with the support of our community. Now and over the next few months. You can make a huge difference.

Together we create change
We are a university that does things differently. We dare to think big and achieve the unachievable. Our unparalleled growth over the past ten years has proven this. Through our relentless drive, we are now ranked in the top 2 per cent of universities worldwide.
Our institution is built on a proud 50-year history, but we are not afraid to disrupt the status quo in our pursuit of change. This pursuit has enabled us to become Australia’s largest regional university, with over 30,000 students, 20 plus locations and more than 100 000 alumni.
