Microwave Rooms

Try as you might, there’s no way you’ll survive on a diet of caffeine. Save cash and time by freezing your leftovers as individual portions; then defrost as needed and zap them in one of five UQU microwave rooms. Open Monday - Friday, 7.00am - 7.00pm, closed Saturday & Sunday the microwave rooms are located:

  • In the Union Complex past Guzman Y Gomez and the Main Course entrance
  • Just inside the Holt Room, Union Complex (L3) next to the refectory seating area
  • In the UQU 24/7 Student Space, Union Complex (L2) next to the Red Room
  • Just outside Physiol (63A)
  • Just outside the Sir James Foots Building 


Discover the 24/7 Student Space
