Brisbane is a vibrant coastal city with beaches and culture galore. Known as QUT's "hilltop" campus, Kelvin Grove is situated on a leafy rise just two kilometers from the city center and is only 10 minutes from the Gardens Point campus via the free student shuttle bus. The Kelvin Grove campus has become the hub of innovative space and enterprise, housing the QUT Creative Industries Precinct and the award-winning Kelvin Grove Urban Village.
