About us

QUT Guild, your student union, exists to make your university experience the most engaging, active and enjoyable it can be. Our activities are guided by students who are elected each year to represent your interests as a student. 

We are a not-for-profit organisation that puts the money we make from our commercial services, as well as any additional funding, back into helping students. So when you purchase something from The Botanic Bar, The Grove, The General Store or Australia Post on campus, know that you are also helping out a fellow or future student!

We are also all about everything outside of the classroom; from events to clubs and societies, free food to volunteering opportunities. We offer free advocacy and legal help to assist you when needed.

What makes us most important though, is that we are independent from QUT. This means that we have your interests at heart and represent students on all important university committees to ensure your voice is heard on all university matters.

So how do you become a member of QUT Guild? If you are a QUT student, you are automatically a member of QUT Guild for free. If you need support, we are here for you.



qut guild's History

A long time ago (1976 to be exact) the QUT Guild was founded. Ever since then we have been providing support and representation for students. Our aim has always been to ensure all students have the best university experience they can during their degree. Each year we host numerous social events, introduce projects that benefit students and negotiate student issues with the university.

We also have a number of services available to students, including The Botanic Bar, Grove Bar, The General Store, and Advocacy and Welfare services.

The governance of the QUT Guild has always been determined by the constitution, and regulations.

The QUT Student Guild is a Statutory Corporation created by the Queensland State Parliament by s34 of the Queensland University of Technology Act 1998.
