USQ Student Guild is a not-for-profit organisation that supports students of the University of Southern Queensland.

The primary service the USQ Student Guild provides is free Student Advocacy to UniSQ students. There is an Advocacy Office in Toowoomba and Springfield and a Virtual Office in Ipswich. There is no cost or fees, so all UniSQ students are welcome to access the support and services we offer.

UniSQ Student Guild is governed by a Board of Directors, made up of students and non-students. The USQ Student Guild Board assists in the long-term planning and strategic decision-making of the UniSQ Student Guild and its initiatives.


Originally, the USQ Student Guild was incorporated in the early 1970s under the Education Act as the Darling Downs Institue of Advanced Education (DDIAE) Union. Under the University of Southern Queensland Act 1989, the DDIAE Union become the USQ Student Association and then become the USQ Student Guild under the University of Southern Queensland Act 1998.
