UQ Brisbane City

308 Queen Street is a restored significant heritage building symbolising our ongoing commitment to preserving Queensland's history and enriching its future.

The University of Queensland’s newest inner-city home, 308 Queen Street, is a dynamic and vibrant business hub enriched by historical collaboration spaces and state-of-the-art teaching facilities.  

Thoughtfully restored to preserve Queensland’s history, the heritage-listed building is now a destination for UQ alumni, industry and government partners to engage, connect and collaborate.

Historical elements of the building have been integrated into the design of The Atrium, a welcoming and inviting place for co-working, meetings, and collaboration. The original marble flooring from 1885 was discovered during construction, and carefully restored to its former glory. The original Classical Revival style of the building has been preserved in the architecture of the ceilings, giant order columns and grand central door. An architectural highlight is the one-of-a-kind ornate glass ceiling dome, which radiates natural light into the space. The geometric shapes from the existing dome are integrated into the design of the furnishings, including the carpet, tables, and lighting fixtures.

Situated at the back of The Atrium is The Long Room, a drop-in space for casual meetings and co-working, with high tables and chairs supporting both individual and collaborative work. For a more intimate setting, the creative suites and meeting rooms are historical and contemporary spaces, designed for meetings and conferences.
