McGregor College is named after a former Toowoomba mayor and influencer in the region's tertiary education development, Dr Alex McGregor. The college was established in 1967 as an initiative of the Darling Downs Association for Advanced Education and now accommodates 200 students in 11 blocks.
The accommodation options offered at the college include:
- 7 single occupancy flats, offering private ensuite bathrooms and separate study room
- 2 accessible units with private ensuite bathroom, washing machine, dryer, reverse cycle air conditioning and accessible car park
- 117 bedrooms, sharing bathroom facilities between two bedrooms
- 61 bedrooms, offering private ensuite bathrooms and reverse cycle air conditioning
Due to the layout of the buildings, McGregor College has become popular with students who are more independent. With this in mind, McGregor staff provide extensive support for all residents allowing for both academic and personal development.
Hi, I’m Michael, your Senior Resident Advisor and I’m Josh, your Resident Student Club President. Welcome to McGregor College, home of the McGregor Devil and the largest college community at USQ. Here at McGregor we offer possibly the best service you could get for this near arctic town of Toowoomba in reverse cycle air conditioning (excellent heating!). However there are also many other advantages of living at McGregor including the great social aspect, single or dual share rooms, formals, sporting opportunities and a great studious environment ( we are at university after all!). I look forward to meeting you in the future and welcoming you into our community
