Queen Mary has campuses throughout the busstling city, our largest is in Mile End; located alongside Regent's Canal, our main campus is equiped with a 24-hour library, bars, restaurants and a night club. What more could you need?

We also have campuses in Whitechapel, Charterhouse Sqaure and West Smithfield (Medine and Denitstry). Postgraduate Law students have a campus in Lincoln's Inn Fields; all of our campuses are close to central londond, with lots of galleries, museums, threatres and parks to check out.


 Living in east London

East London has been transformed in recent years and is now one of the most exciting parts of London. We're close to Shoreditch and Brick Lane, the Tech City technology cluster, and Canary Wharf. 

Is sport your thing? Cycle just 10 minutes from out Mile End campus and you'll find the world-class Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park!

Want to shop or head for brunch? We're just 15 minutes from Oxford Circus by tube.

Commuting to Queen Mary

Many of our students choose to live at home. As a major commuter centre, London has great transport links, and many students find commuting a convenient and cost-effective choice! All of our campuses are easily accessible by London’s public transport network- Mile End and Whitechapel are both in Zone 2

The Students’ Union has a dedicated Commuters Society to help students connect with others on their route and find a travel buddy, so don't worry about missing out!

If you’re commuting to Queen Mary this year you’re not alone! Come along to Drapers to meet your fellow commuters and make some new travel buddies. The Commuter Students Social Event is on Friday 13th September from 6pm-9pm. More information is available here.
