Student help on Campus (SHOC)

SHOC (Student Help On Campus) is an independent, short term support service for all UQ students. SHOC can provide you with assistance on matters relating to advocacy, support and university decisions.

SHOC has six services on offer: Education & Equity, Employment, Gender & Sexuality, Legal, Migration, and Welfare.

As an independent body, UQU represent students on all important university committees to ensure your voice is heard on all university matters.

Any profits made from business activities are invested back into UQU to further improve services and facilities which benefit the students. Read more about UQU and SSAF.
