COVID-19 vaccination requirements to attend UQ campuses, sites and facilities

(UPDATED: 9:10am, Wednesday 22 December 2021)

From 14 February 2022, anyone attending UQ campuses, sites or facilities must be fully vaccinated – with an approved TGA vaccine – against COVID-19.

This will include: 

  • staff (including academic affiliates) 
  • students 
  • volunteers 
  • contractors 
  • controlled entities 
  • tenants, and 
  • visitors 16 years and older. 

Exemptions include people who are: 

  • under the age of 16 
  • attending UQ locations for the sole purpose of seeking health care 
  • responding to an emergency 
  • engaging in research trials where an exemption has been granted for the purposes of the trial 
  • performing urgent and essential health and safety work 
  • visitors that have limited or no interaction with UQ staff and students (incidental visitors). 

    As supported by health authorities, the COVID-19 vaccine is proven to be the most effective protection against the virus, potential hospitalisation, and severe health consequences. 

    Next steps 

    All UQ Sport customers will receive an email with further information regarding how the vaccine mandate will impact our community by end of January.  

    Booking your vaccination 

    If you have not yet had your COVID-19 vaccination, staff and students can book now with UQ Health Care, at the Gordon Greenwood Building (building 32) at St Lucia. 

    Appointments are available from 9.30am to 12.30pm Monday to Friday up until Friday 23 December, and then from Monday 10 January next year. Alternatively, you can find a vaccine clinic closer to your location during the holidays on the Queensland Government website. 

    We understand that some members of our community may be hesitant about COVID-19 vaccines. We recommend speaking with your GP or treating medical practitioner. 

    More information 

    Please head to the UQ COVID-19 website for more information regarding this direction. 

    COVID-19 Mask Requirements

    (UPDATED: 9.15pm, Saturday 1 January 2022)

    The Queensland Government has reintroduced mask mandates across Queensland, effective from 2am, Sunday 2 January 2022.

    In accordance with Government requirements, and at the direction of The University of Queensland, the following remains in effect at both St Lucia and Gatton:

    • Wear a mask in indoor venues and facilities, except when doing strenuous exercise (including running, cycling or high-intensity interval training).
    • Masks are not mandatory when utilising outdoor venues and facilities, as long as 1.5m physical distancing is maintained.
    • Carry a face mask at all times.
    • Check into our venues and facilities through the Check In Qld app.

    Given the changing nature of the situation, it is vital that all UQ Sport customers and patrons monitor updates and adhere to health directives outlined by the Queensland Government.

    Further updates will be published on this page when available.
