The facilities of the University are primarily used for educational and research purposes of the University. Where these facilities are not fully utilised for such purposes, they are available for use by University and external organisations on a hire basis, subject to the conditions of the Campus Site Licence or Internal Hire Guidelines.
Facility types for hire include: Sports facilities, lecture theatres and teaching spaces, gardens and outdoor spaces, internal open spaces and community rooms.
Activities undertaken within these facilities should be consistent with the functions of the University. Where doubt exists, Campus Services will make a determination as to the suitability of any specific event based on the amenity of the space and the activity's impact on nearby functions of the University. For example, it would be inappropriate to hold loud activities adjacent to study areas or events that clash with peak University activities. Other elements that will be taken into consideration include:-
- USQ Hire of Facilities Policy
- Internal Hire Guidelines
- USQ Insurance Policy
- Children on Campus Procedure
- Alcohol and Drugs and Smoking on University Sites policies
- Food Standards Code
- Commercial arrangements with USQ tenants
- Other relevant USQ Policies
Depending on the nature of the activity, hires may be required to undertake a USQ site safety induction and 'sign in' at USQ Security.
