The University of Queensland (UQ) is a flagship research university primarily located in Queensland's capital city, Brisbane. UQ is one of Australia's oldest and most selective universities, consistently ranked among the top in global rankings. UQ is the leading Australian university for business and life sciences.

Founded in 1909, UQ is colloquially known as a sandstone university. The main campus occupies much of the riverside inner suburb of St Lucia, southwest of the Brisbane central business district. Other UQ campuses and facilities are located throughout Queensland, the largest of which are the Gatton campus and the Herston medical school. UQ has establishments overseas, such as the Brunei Clinical School and the UQ-Ochsner Clinical School in Louisiana, United States.

The University of Queensland is a contributing charter member of edX, an online higher education consortium led by Harvard and MIT, as well as a founding member of Australia's research-intensive Group of Eight and the global Universitas 21 network. As a research university, UQ incorporates over one hundred research institutes and centres, such as the Australian Institute for Bioengineering and Nanotechnology and the Institute for Molecular Bioscience.
