Ask any present or past student, and they will tell you life at the University of Queensland is about more than just study – social interaction and connection is what makes the uni experience so unique.

As businesses, students and staff prepare for a semester unlike any other, you may find yourself ready to return to campus. With COVID-19 restrictions slowly easing, you can finally at long last catch up with friends, grab a coffee and study together here at UQ.

If you do come and visit the campus, why not make it an overnight trip, and relax and unwind at Essence Suites Taringa?

An overnight stay for those returning to attend both in-person and online classes, or spending time reconnecting with mates, is the ideal way to make the most of your campus visit.

Essence Suites Taringa has 63 luxuriously appointed studio, one bedroom and two-bedroom suites to suit all budgets, and you can relax and unwind while taking in the sweeping views across Brisbane to Mount Coot-tha. Complimentary Wi-Fi and access to spacious guest facilities means you can continue to study or connect with friends during your stay, whilst being just minutes away from Taringa Station and Indooroopilly Shopping Centre, and only 15 minutes from the CBD.

Enjoy the extra time to reconnect and study, while enjoying what’s on offer, with campus favourites such as Belltop Café, Lakeside Café and Merlo Coffee open for business plus Darwin’s, REDROOM and Pizza Caffe reopening soon, along with popular retail and food outlets like Subway, Campus Pharmacy and The School Locker, also all available to grab a meal and unwind with your friends. Who knew a visit to campus could feel so much like a holiday?
