Abilities Collective

The UQU Abilities Collective, provided by UQU, is a group for UQ students who identify as having a disability, chronic illness, or mental illness.
The Collective provides peer support and assistance during university through fostering a positive, open, and caring community. We run informal networking events, organised events and meetings as well as the Abilities Room – a safe space.

The Abilities Collective is a safe and supportive space to discuss concerns and ideas, share knowledge about how to get help on campus when facing difficulties, as well as a place to forge new friendships.

Another role of the Collective is to raise awareness of issues surrounding disability on campus and in the wider community. We do this by running awareness events, campaigns, and fundraisers throughout the semester, as well as advocating for the rights of students with disabilities to the University.
