Travelling by train?

Travelling by bus?

CityCycle hire station 53 is opposite the Brisbane campus, with over 150 stations around Brisbane's CBD.
If you wish to ride your own bike to campus, remember to bring a bike lock for security. At this stage, the campuses do not offer bike racks so you are responsible for finding a safe parking location.
Need to park your car?
Be mindful that the Brisbane campuses do not offer student parking. Paid parking is available outside the building, however much of it is reserved for local residents.
Wilson Parking offers 24/7 car parking at Chinatown and Tempo Hotel. Check out their website for rates.
