At the Cairns Campus, there are a multitude of events happening across the Term. Generally, these will be advertised via our CQUni Cairns (Official) Facebook group and via our WHAT’S ON posters around campus.

However, there are a few events that we like to run EACH AND EVERY term.

TASTY TUESDAYS – From 11am every second Tuesday of term, we provide free snacks such as toasties, noodle cups and muesli bars in the student kitchen. Take some time out, make yourself a snack and meet new people too!

OMG WEEK – Head into campus to celebrate making it to Week 3! Yoga classes, Donut Day, Live music from Creative Arts students and more!

EXAM WEEK HEALTHY EATING AND COFFEE VOUCHERS – Don’t forget to pick up a coffee voucher from reception and your free brain food from the student kitchen during exam week.

STUDENT BONUS PROGRAM

At the Cairns campus, we believe that the CBD is our campus. Our location in the heart of the CBD allows our staff and students to take advantage of the proximity to cafes, restaurants, retail shops, tourism companies and more. The Student Bonus program was developed to provide a list of these local Cairns businesses that offer discounts to our students.

With over 50 members of the Student Bonus program, students can find a wide variety of businesses that offer discounts in the following categories:

Food and beverage

Health

Leisure

Hair and Beauty

Banking and Finance

Download the Student Bonus Handout Booklet or ask at reception, for a full list of businesses. Please check in store for details.

PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT

Keep an eye out via our CQUni Cairns (Official) Facebook group and WHAT’S ON posters to see the latest opportunities for PD sessions.

These sessions can be workshops, networking events, panel discussions and more.
