Road Closures: UQ Gatton Graduations December 2022

7 Nov 2022

The University of Queensland will be hosting the December 2022 Graduations at Gatton on Thursday 8 December 2022.

Please note the key dates below

Set-up: Friday 2 December 2022 – Tuesday 6 December 2022
Ceremonies: Thursday 8 December 2022 at 11am and 2.30pm
Pack-up: Friday 9 December 2022

If you would like further details on the ceremony schedule, please see the Graduation webpage.

Graduation ceremonies are held in the Gymnasium (8114) followed by post-ceremony celebrations in the Central Walkway. A large number of graduates and their guests will be present and moving constantly between the two areas, increasing pedestrian traffic in and around the Gymnasium, Morrison Hall, Foundation Building and the Central Walkway.

We request that noise, unnecessary vehicle movement and/or construction works in and around the affected areas are reduced or factored out, in order to enhance our graduates’ experience and minimise risk.

Road closures 

As per previous years, road closures will be in place during graduations due to the increased pedestrian traffic. The road closures are essential to reduce the risks associated with the large number of people and suppliers on campus.

Please familiarise yourself with the Gatton campus road closures map (PDF, 119 KB) and note that all roads around the Gymnasium will be closed to vehicle access. Inner Ring Road will be closed to vehicle access between Morrison Hall and the Gymnasium – as well as along Galletly Road. Access to the swimming pool car park will be one way only.

UQ Security will be on site managing the closures and allowing restricted access to graduations providers only, during periods of low risk, and Emergency Services vehicles, if required.
