When considering applications, we look for future residents who will contribute to and gain from our community as a whole.  We want to see the real you behind the academic results – your interests, personality and aspirations for the future.

Applications must be received by 30 September to be considered for the following year and we appreciate early, thoughtful and complete applications.

We use the following selection criteria to determine the order of offers for placement:

  1. Academic merit
  2. Community engagement
  3. Cultural achievements
  4. Sporting achievements
  5. General suitability to College life
  6. Historical and family connections to Women’s
  7. Home location (priority to rural and regional Queenslanders)
  8. University choice (priority to UQ students)

An offer of residency is based on the judgment of the Head of College and Deputy Head of College about your ability to contribute to and gain from College life.  They take into account your written application, interview presentation, referees’ reports, academic background and community involvement.
