As a QMUL Summer School student, you will be offered a place on campus in our comfortable accommodation. You’ll have an en-suite single room in one of our self-catering flats, so you can meet other students and make friends while you are here. Breakfast is included in your accommodation (so that’s one less thing for you to think about…).
A peaceful oasis in a busy city
Our modern campus is set beside the Regent’s Canal, looking on to Mile End Park. It has a friendly, relaxed atmosphere: with plenty of greenery and attractive outdoor spaces here, so it’s easy to forget that you’re in the middle of a busy capital city. We hope that it will soon feel like your London home.
Our campus has a friendly community of staff and students and is noted for its safety and convenience. You’ll just be a short walk away from your classes. On campus, we also have two grocery shops, four cafés, two restaurants, a bar, a health and fitness centre, a bookshop and a bank. All this and you are only 15 minutes from the West End.
What’s around me?
You’ll be living in the heart of London’s vibrant East End, one of the hippest parts of the city. Find out more about your new neighbourhood.
How do I book my accommodation?
To secure your accommodation, you’ll have to book your Summer School place at least 10 weeks before the Summer School starts.
Your accommodation costs £899 per three-week Summer School session.
You’ll be able to use your room from the Sunday before your Summer School starts, so:
- 25 June 2018 – 13 July 2018 (you can use your room from 24 June 2018)
- 16 July 2018 – 3 August 2018 (you can use your room from 15 July 2018)
If you have registered for both Summer School sessions, you will be able to stay in the same room, and also stay during the interim weekend (14 –15 July 2018).
You will need to book your accommodation online via the QMUL E-shop, which will open for booking in January 2018. You will need to pay for your accommodation in full when you book. (Please remember that you can only book your accommodation once we have made you an offer to study with us and you have accepted your study place.)
What’s in my room?
We will provide you with bedding and towels. Your room will be clean when you arrive and there will also be a deep-clean once a week (This means a full clean and a change of linen and towels.). You will also have a daily service, which will include the emptying of your bin and restocking toilet paper. You also have free wifi.
In your shared kitchen, you’ll find a cooker, microwave, freezer and kettle, toaster, with a mini-fridge in your bedroom. Basic crockery, cutlery and utensils will also be provided.
What’s for breakfast?
We’ll give you breakfast each day: a range of cooked and continental food, including vegetarian options. We are happy to meet specific dietary requirements if you tell us in advance, so that we can plan accordingly.
“The QMUL campus was one of the most exciting aspects about studying at Queen Mary: I couldn’t wait to be a short walk from my classes, live with roommates and feel a sense of community”
