Students on campus, by Regent's Canal

Queen Mary is a campus-based university, with five sites stretching across east and central London. We have been based at our home in Mile End for over 130 years, and can offer one of the largest self-contained residential campuses in the capital. Set alongside the beautiful Regent’s Canal and pocketed with green spaces, it’s easy to forget you’re in the middle of a bustling city.

Our students are able to enjoy all the advantages of campus life: a friendly student community, safety, and convenience. Nothing is ever more than a five minute walk away; we have shops, restaurants, a bar, gym, bank and accommodation all on site. We also have accommodation for medical and dental students at our Charterhouse Square and Whitechapel campuses.

Queen Mary boasts one of the most active Students' Unions in London. We have over 250 student societies and more than 60 sports offered at competitive level. The union organises over 300 events each year, including everything from graffiti workshops to speed meeting and a floating cinema. Our students also have access to Qmotion, QMSU's Health and Fitness Centre on campus, which offers a wide range of exercise classes and industry standard gym equipment

We have a diverse student body of 21,187 students representing over 162 nationalities creating a thriving community of people from all walks of life. No one day is ever the same for our students and with so much to do on campus, it is no surprise that we have some of the most satisfied students in the capital.
