University of Queensland is a ferry wharf in the suburb of St Lucia used by the CityCat on the Brisbane River.

A non-TransLink cross river ferry service formerly ran between UQ and Dutton Park, but was discontinued when the bus, cyclist and pedestrian only Eleanor Schonell Bridge adjacent to the route was completed.

In January 2011 the wharf was destroyed during the devastating floods and the rebuilding works were expected to take months.[1]

The terminal was re-opened on 18 April after temporary measures were put in place by the Brisbane City Council to restore CityCat operations.[2]

On 25 May 2015 a new University of Queensland ferry wharf was opened. The new wharf is 450 meters upriver from the previous facility, and is near the UQ Lakes busway station and Eleanor Schonell Bridge.[3][4]
