Brisbane is the capital city of Queensland, famously known as the ‘Sunshine State’. It’s a city that’s very easy to get around and boasts world-class galleries, has a booming live music scene and a strong café culture, all while retaining a relaxed and easy-going lifestyle.

Our Brisbane campus is situated in the heart of the Central Business District. The campus is easily accessible as it is a short walk from Central train station and King George Square bus station. The campus is comprised of nine floors with modern, state-of-the-art facilities to offer you a fresh learning environment, helping you to pursue your academic interests.

The campus is student-focused, with areas dedicated to student relaxation, fun and games, and ample study spaces. Relax and mingle with your friends over lunch or challenge them to a game of table tennis or pool between classes!

Brisbane is famous for its relaxed atmosphere with a big city feel and mild winters, meaning there is always an excuse to get out and about.

Brisbane is one of the fastest-growing regions in Australia, with a population of around 1.7 million people in the greater metropolitan area. The city is noted for major sports and leisure facilities, and for major cultural facilities, including the Queensland Cultural Centre at South Bank. Brisbane has a major international airport, with frequent services from around the globe and is close to two of Australia's best beach regions - the Gold Coast and the Sunshine Coast.

Brisbane is known for its warmer, more temperate climate so you can take advantage of 260 days of sunshine every year by exploring Queen Street Mall, picturesque Botanic Gardens, the State Library of Queensland, Queensland Performing Arts Centre, and Southbank Parklands; all within walking distance from CQUniversity Brisbane.

Brisbane has been recognised as the 29th best city in the world for students (QS Best Student Cities 2022).
