Set away from the Mile End Road and set beside the beautiful Regent's Canal, you would be forgiven for thinking that you were no longer in busy London when on campus. Our students live in the award winning Westfield Student Village, only a few minutes' walk from all of our social and teaching facilities. They can enjoy the tranquil surroundings of campus and yet can be in the centre of the City in minutes.
On campus, nothing is ever more than a few minutes away. Students living in the Westfield Student Village are only a five-minute walk from the Students' Union bar and any lecture theatres – perfect for those 9am starts!
Queen Mary also boasts one of the most active Students' Unions in London. They run over 100 clubs and societies and organise regular social events at the recently refurbished Drapers' Bar, so our students are never bored here. For the more athletically inclined, the recently opened campus Health and Fitness Centre offers a wide range of exercise classes and industry standard gym equipment for use by our students.
Our cosmopolitan student body is often described as the friendliest in London. With over 15,000 students on a single campus, our students can socialise with people from all walks of life; we are proud to boast a student body that is both national and international in its makeup. No one day is ever the same for our students and with so much to do on campus, it is no surprise that they are more than satisfied with their time here.
