Global Opportunities


Living in London as a student allows you to experience life in one of the world’s greatest cities in an affordable way.

As a Study Abroad student, you are eligible to apply for Queen Mary accommodation. We offer Queen Mary accommodation both on and nearby our Mile End Campus. Our accommodation offers comfortable, modern, self-catered flats. Please note you must follow all application and accommodation deadlines to be eligible. 

Our Mile End Halls of Residence are all within a maximum five-minute walk of each other. Visiting your friends is easy and our 24-hour Security team and Residences Support teams are on hand if you have any queries. 

What to expect

All of the rooms in our flats are single occupancy and the majority have en-suite (private) bathroom facilities. Typically, rooms are grouped in flats for between four and six students with shared kitchen facilities. All of our rooms are carpeted, equipped with a single bed, wardrobe, bookshelves, desk, chair and storage space. Many rooms contain their own mini-fridge. Kitchens are fully equipped with refrigerators, freezers, cookers, storage cupboards, food preparation areas and dining areas.

The Study Abroad programme gives you a fully immersive experience: you will be placed in flats with UK and fellow international students, of both genders, so you can meet a range of people with varied viewpoints and experiences.

If you have any special requirements, please contact the Residences team so that we can accommodate them.

Pre-paid meal plans

Postgraduate students

If you are a postgraduate student on the Study Abroad Programme, please contact us on to find out about your housing options. Postgraduate students are not guaranteed accommodation on campus, however, we can liaise with our Residences team to find out if there are any spaces for your semester of study. Please ensure you contact us as soon as possible after accepting your offer to study.

Applying for on-campus accommodation

Once you accept your place to study here, full details on how to apply for on-campus accommodation will be sent to you. Queen Mary’s housing is very popular and we suggest you apply as early as possible. 

Alternative housing options

We can provide specialist advice on a range of alternative housing including renting a local room or flat, finding a room in a privately built hall of residence, or choosing a homestay or short-stay option. 

Queen Mary Student Room Share

Some of our QMUL home students rent out their room while they are on their semester/year abroad. As an Erasmus+ student, you can register online to view these rentals on the Student Share Notice Board.
