About Mathematics and Statistics

Mathematics is one of the most enduring fields of study, and is essential in an expanding number of disciplines and professions. Many mathematicians continue to expand our knowledge of the field by developing new results. But today, mathematicians also combine their knowledge of mathematics and statistics with modelling and computational skills and use the latest computer technology to solve problems in the physical and biological sciences, engineering, information technology, economics, and business.

Mathematics is located in the Priestley Building (Building No. 67) on the St Lucia Campus. All enquiries and deliveries should be directed to:

Callers from outside the University will need to add a prefix to the extension number provided.

For extension 5xxxx, eg. 56789, add 336 = 336-56789

For extension 6xxxx, eg. 67890, add 334 = 334-67890

From outside Queensland
The prefix is 07 eg. 3365 6789 = 07 3365 6789

From outside Australia
The prefix is +61 7 eg. 3365 6789 = +61 7 3365 6789
