One of the many advantages of Queen Mary is that we are a campus-based university. This means that we have high quality student accommodation on-site, just a short walk from the school and lecture theatres, shops, restaurants, bars and other campus facilities.

Details of campus accommodation can be found on the Residences website.

The Residences team have a wealth of experience in private lettings too, so even if you decide to live off campus, they can offer help and advice on finding accommodation.

Support and advice

We appreciate that undertaking an MA is a large financial commitment. If you have any queries about financial matters our fantastic Advice and Counselling team are on hand to assist.

Both applicants and students have access to their services.

If you are an international applicant, the UKCISA(link is external) website is a great source of advice. They can provide you with a range of information, from what it’s like living and studying in the UK to a budget calculator to help you stay on top of your finances.
