Important message to EU students

On October 11th 2016 Jo Johnson, Minister for Universities and Science, announced that EU students who enrol at a UK University in September 2017(link is external) will have access to loan support for the duration of their studies.  It has also been confirmed that tuition fee levels for EU students who enter UK Higher Education in September 2017 will remain at the same level of that of UK students for the duration of their studies. Please see the fees website for further information

One of the many advantages of Queen Mary is that we are the only Central London, 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

The costs of university can seem quite daunting. 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.
