50th Celebration Gala Dinner

JCU Alumni at the footy

NQ Cowboys v Melbourne Storm NRL


Thank you for registering to join us at the NQ Cowboys vs Melbourne Storm game on 16th April at the new Townsville Stadium.   


Due to the uncertainty relating to the NRL season and the spread of COVID-19, we have had to cancel this event to ensure the health and wellbeing of everybody in our communities.   Furthermore, JCU’s 50th celebrations that were due to commence on 20th April have also been postponed to a later date.  


As a consolation to everyone who registered to attend the game we’ll be raffling off a fully-signed 2020 season NQ Cowboys jersey on the evening of the 16th April. So standby to see if you’re the winner!


REFUNDS: If you  have already paid and would like to donate the cost of your ticket to JCU’s Student Hardship fund, simply email jcuadvancement@jcu.edu.au and we can send you a tax deductible receipt for your generosity, alternatively to organise a refund please send us an email.


Whilst we can’t celebrate in person at the moment there are still some ways you can connect with us and share your memories of JCU:

  • Share your story with us and tell us about your memories of JCU
  • Reconnect with your cohort or special interest group
  • Share your photos with us – we know there’s some interesting photos out there
  • Send us a video or photo message on Facebook Messenger for our 50th celebrations – we’d love to share these with the rest of our community


We hope you and your family stay well during these trying times and we urge you to care for your neighbours and community as best you can.  For information about COVID-19 you can visit JCU’s dedicated website.
