USC celebrates the festive season with Solar Nights

3 Dec 2018

As part of our ongoing commitment to our communities, USC is proud to present Solar Nights — an ethereal, interactive light trail for the whole community to enjoy.

Running for 10 nights from December 14-23 at USC Sunshine Coast, the event aims to captivate, inspire and entertain people of all ages.

Solar Nights celebrates our partnership with Veolia to install 6000 solar panels and eventually a water battery at no cost to the University. The system will cut energy use at our Sunshine Coast campus by 40 percent - a first for an Australian university.

The displays have been designed and built by our own USC staff.

USC has also sponsored a series of community Christmas events from the Fraser Coast to Moreton Bay:

  • Caboolture Christmas Carols, 25 November
  • North Lakes Christmas Carols, 2 December
  • Maryborough Carols in the Park, 9 December
  • Gympie Christmas in the Park, 9 December
  • Hervey Bay Carols by Candlelight, 15 December

USC values being part of the communities that support us and we hope you can make it along to Solar Nights or a community Christmas event in your region.
