Returning students are required to re-register and sign in after 2.00pm on the first day of the semester. Dinner will be available that evening. Any variance to these times must be pre-approved by the Dean of College.

If students access their rooms before the due date of return, a vacation residence charge will apply.

First-year students will find this packing list of what to bring to College useful.


Orientation Week

Emmanuel College 2018 Orientation Week begins on Saturday 10 February. Many O Week activities are organised by The University of Queensland, however, the main purpose of this week is to welcome new Collegians, inform them about the College and university life, and prepare them for the coming academic year. Students are required to attend the sessions detailed in the O Week program. The Emmanuel College Students’ Club (ECSC) social and community events are optional.

If you have any questions regarding checking in or O Week, please contact our office as we are more than happy to assist you.

We look forward to welcoming you to Emmanuel College.
