Do you have an overly loved personal item in need of repair? Threads that need patching up? A bike that needs fixing? A clock that’s stopped ticking? A stool on its last leg?

Toss it? No way!

Bring them to UQ’s Repair Café and they will be fixed for free by our apprentice fixers under the expert guidance of UQ Innovate staff.

UQ’s Repair Café aims to fix items that would otherwise go to landfill, and teach students and staff skills to repair their own broken items, all while enjoying a cuppa and chat.

The Repair Café is a partnership between Engineers Without Borders UQ, UQ Innovate and the Sustainability Office.  

Our next UQ Repair Café event: 

  • Date: Monday 18 October
  • Time: 11am-2pm
  • Room: 275 ( Seminar Room)
  • Building: Global Change Institute (20)
Repairs undertaken: This repair event will be for sewing repairs only.
