STUDENTS will now have access to everything they need to know about social and sporting aspects at university.

A shopfront focusing on student life has opened on the University of Southern Queensland's Toowoomba campus.

Phoenix Central, located just off USQ Toowoomba's grassy Quad, was launched this week as part of O Week.

It will provide students with tools and information to get involved in university clubs and societies, social activities and sporting events such as the University Games.

Orientation co-ordinator Christopher Watson said O Week was the perfect time to launch Phoenix Central.

"We're looking to build the community side of things at USQ," Mr Watson said.

"By increasing student engagement we can really energise the students' university experience by providing opportunities for personal growth and development.

"These activities and experiences give students the chance to make new friends, develop graduate skills, establish networks and connect with their local community."

Mr Watson said the shop would also organise activities like live music, barbecues and outside games every Wednesday during the USQ Common Hour.

Students can also take advantage of a free coffee hour every week.
