About the building

The University of Queensland's Mayne Medical School, named after benefactors James and Mary Emelia Mayne, has been home to UQ's medical community since 1937.

The building remains in its original structure and offers visitors a rare chance to step back in time. Towering columns create a grand entrance into a revitalised interior with state-of-the-art conference and event facilities after an heritage-approved renovation in 2020. Mystery and legends also adorn the building with carefully curated exhibits displayed throughout, as part of the rejuvenated Marks-Hirschfeld Museum of Medical History.

We welcome all alumni and friends to return home to The Mayne Medical School building and host your next event in this premier function venue full of character and history.
