Event Description

Full Description:
The Support and Services Showcase aims to connect new and returning students to central, faculty and school level services. All the main university services will come together at the UQ Centre on March 27th to help students discover or re-discover services, programs and opportunities that will benefit them throughout their university life. Students will also have the chance to win a number of amazing prizes including a Microsoft Surface, vouchers and more.
