The University of Queensland (UQ) values social media as a space to share experiences and information, and create lasting connections. We encourage learning, respectful discussion and academic debate, and we welcome contributions to our social media platforms, as long as they contribute to a safe and vibrant online community.

UQ’s community includes current students, future students, alumni, professional and academic staff, stakeholders, industry partners and members of the public. Content posted, or commented on, by any individual is the opinion of the poster and is not necessarily representative of UQ.

UQ does not discriminate against individual views, but reserves the right to delete or moderate any of the following within its online communities:

  • Violent, obscene, profane, racist, homophobic, transphobic, denigrating or generally hateful comments
  • Sexually explicit content and content commenting on sexuality or gender (assumed or otherwise)
  • Content that aims to blackmail / manipulate an individual
  • Commenting on a person’s appearance, e.g. rating a person’s attractiveness or stating they’re ‘asking for it’
  • Comments that threaten to, or aim to harm the reputation of any person or organisation
  • Unauthorised commercial solicitations (such as spam)
  • Comments suggesting or encouraging illegal activity
  • Multiple off-topic posts or repetitive posts that are copied and pasted
  • Personal information including, but not limited to, e-mail addresses, telephone numbers, mailing addresses, or identification numbers.

If there is activity you find offensive as a user, please report it using the moderation tools of the social media platform it was viewed on, and if necessary, notify the social media account’s administrator via direct message or email.
