International Students FAQ

How can I use the UQ Sport facilities?

There’s lots of ways you can access our facilities. If you’ll be on campus for a long time, you may like to consider a membership with us. You can choose from the all-inclusive UQ Sport Gold Membership which gives you access to the gym, pool, tennis courts and ALL our group fitness classes. But if you’d like to stick with just the gym or swimming, then we have individual memberships for these too. Maybe you only want to use the facilities now and again, or have to return home over the holidays. That’s OK. We’ve also got casual entry passes to all our venues so you can simply pay as you go or, for some of our venues, it’s possible to buy 10 visits up front.

I’m only at UQ for a short time, are the memberships flexible?

Our aim is to offer you the ultimate flexibility when choosing your membership and allow you to pick the level of commitment that suits you. You can also choose to pay for your membership all at once or on a rolling fortnightly basis via direct debit. If you choose our direct debit option (minimum of nine payments), it’s easy to cancel your membership (two weeks’ notice is required) or you can even put your membership on hold for up to 16 weeks!

Can anyone play sport or workout?

Yes! Everyone is welcome. Whether you have been playing sport all your life or are new to working out, you can come and be a part of UQ Sport. We do not have any specific facilities or classes that are for girls or guys only, everything we offer is open to everyone. Plus if you are interested in joining a UQ Sport club, you don’t have to be super-amazing athlete – anyone can join!

Can I join a team or use the facilities even if I don’t know many people on campus?

Joining a team is a great way to make new friends and you definitely don’t need to know people before you start playing. Our social sport programs are specifically for students looking to have fun and meet new people and there’s heaps of cool social sport competitions to choose from.

If you have any other questions, please come in and see us at any of the UQ Sport venues, and we’ll be happy to talk to you. Or get in touch with us below...
