From Monday 17th of Feb, QUT campuses are coming alive with two weeks of back-to-back events. Alongside official uni orientations, QUT Guild has something going on every day until Friday 28th of Feb, and various affiliated clubs are hosting socials throughout the first few weeks of sem! We’ll do our best to summarise everything that’s going on. If you have an event you’d like listed, tag us on Facebook or shoot us a message!
