iQ Life

Welcome to iQ, welcome home for 2021/22

Wherever in the world you’ve joined us from, whatever you’re studying, whatever you’re all about… Bring on your iQ Life.


What’s life like at iQ? Good question. And there’s nobody better to answer it than our student residents who get the most of their iQ experience. After all, university is about much more than hitting the books.

#MyiQlife is more than a hashtag. Use it to meet other students, stay on top of all things social and get involved in the fun. You can find us on:
