UQ Walking Tour Part II

17 March, 2007 | Written by Patchay at 2:49 PM in ,

--- con't from Part 1

Here's some faculties a stone's throw away from my college and the lakeside area.

(clockwise) School of Molecular Biosciences; Chemistry; Joyce Ackroyd Building (next to Business School); Chemical Engineering School and Sir James Foots Building

The main building for UQ Business School is called Colin Clark. The school is one of four schools within the Faculty of Business, Economics and Law.

Wooot ...the palm trees there make Me feel ...so like home ...

Walking up these stairs aren't easy, especially under the afternoon sun. Some of my tutorials are held here, so imagine how much exercise I went through !

UQ Library is the largest in Queensland state, with over 13 branches serving all UQ campuses. But I would only use this one (Duhig Building), and it is my campus's largest library.

The main entrance to the oldest and most photographed building in this University - the Forgan Smith. But somehow it looks ugly to Me, very honestly.

This is the T C Beirne School of Law. Hahaha ... the height of those trees somehow resembles inequality. So what kind of law students would you expect lol ?

James and Mary Emelia Mayne Centre is home to the University Art Museum.

The "Great Court" lawn area is at the heart of this campus. Crowded with people during weekdays as most students chill-out here. Other activities may include reading, sunbathing, sleeping, and hopefully no sex please.

A cafe with pinkish umbrellas under a canopy near the Great Court.

The university main bus stop is located here - Chancellors' Place. The Student Centre is adjacent. So this could be one of the busiest road on campus.

Opposite the bus stop is CSIRO's major research facility in Queensland. Located within UQ's Bioscience Precinct (QBP), it houses more than 700 researchers.

I also learned that the QBP is Australia’s largest research facility dedicated to human, animal and plant biotechnological research.

Another landmark is the AIBN (Australian Institute of Bioengineering and Nanotechnology).

It is one of Australia's primary research facility for cell and tissue culture, vascular biology, nanotech and biomaterials, microscopy analysis and cytometry, computational molecular science and blah blah blah.

Hundreds of mad scientists can be found here !!!

From AIBN, I'll take a shortcut back to my college. Crossing this cricket oval is pretty scary especially at night, but thankfully nothing had happened to me as yet. Cheers.

Wanna see more photos? Just click here Patchay UQ. Future photos will be uploaded there (as I've received lots lots of request...pls pls go there). Thank you for viewing.
