Want something a little more low key? Why not test your knowledge at the Quiz Night at the Griff Inn on Monday 16th September (7pm).

The Students’ Union also runs events throughout the year, including alcohol-free options and activities for postgraduate and international students.

Our great Try Something New programme is a series of student-led events, which run through first and second semester every year. Check out the Freshers page on the Students' Union website to find out more about the Students' Union and how you can get involved, or take a look at the guides below!

Wellbeing Hub

Come and visit the Wellbeing Hub on Wednesday 18th September and Thursday 19th September 2019, 10am–4pm in Library Square, Mile End to get information on the student wellbeing services available to you at Queen Mary.

We have plenty of advice on sexual health, drug and alcohol use, and staying safe and healthy while at university. You'll also be able to get a free Meningitis ACWY vaccination at the Wellbeing Hub if you're 25 or under and haven't had one yet.

Visit us at the Wellbeing Hub and follow us on social media – #QMWellbeingHub.
