When:  Biolab Hacky Hour UQ occurs on the last Tuesday of the month, 3–4pm. Occasionally it is cancelled if no RCC and QCIF experts are available that day. Because Hacky Hour is held outside Cafe Nano, it is cancelled if it is raining. For updates, follow Hacky Hour UQ on Twitter (@HackyHourStLuc) or check the blog.

Where: Due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation, Hacky Hour will be held via Zoom video conference until further notice. For Zoom meeting details please email

When it's deemed safe to do so, Hacky Hour UQ will return to being held at Café Nano (outside), near AIBN, on the St Lucia Campus (view map).
