USC Market Days

USC hosts regular markets days at the Sunshine Coast campus during the semester. USC Market Days aim to bring in external retailers that provide complementary products and services to the University community alongside our permanent tenants. Student clubs and associations, as well as external organisation information booths, are also welcome to recruit new members or offer free advice.

At the request of the student body, live music is also performed on the Brasserie Courtyard stage during Market operational hours. If you are interested in performing and would like more information please email
