Student life at Queen Mary

At Queen Mary, you become part of a friendly and inclusive global on-campus community, make lifelong friends and try new activities – with one of the world’s most exciting cities awaiting you.

What's on offer

There’s nowhere quite like East London and we’re proud of our unique location. It’s international and bustling – a place where new ideas spring up and great things take shape. We're close to Shoreditch and Brick Lane, the Tech City technology cluster, and the financial centres of Canary Wharf and the City. 

Mile End is home to most of our academic Schools and offers everything you need to live, relax and study – including, shops, cafés, restaurants, Students Union and a gym. Some of our student accommodation is just a short walk from lecture theatres and our 24-hour library. There’s plenty of green and outdoor space to enjoy and Central London’s bustling streets are only a short journey away.

I chose to study at Queen Mary because I really liked that it’s a campus uni but that it was also in London so I kind of got the best of both worlds.
