New Students

Welcome Week

Welcome Week starts Monday 16th September

What is Welcome Week?

Welcome Week is when we welcome you to Queen Mary and there are lots of exciting events happening throughout the week! If you're unsure of where to go or what to do, come and visit us at the Information Point in Library Sqaure.

Make sure you’re fully prepared to register for your programme by checking out our enrolment pages. Also, attend the programme introduction sessions your School/institute is running to help you settle in and find out more about your course.

If you’re an international student you can find more information on the international pre-arrival pages

Top tip: familiarise yourself with our LibraryIT Services and QM+ websites and get to know your fellow classmates at the range of events run by the Students' Union.

If you want some more information on settling into university or just advice for this exciting and sometimes overwhelming time, look at our Transitions Guide [PDF 4,346KB].

Students' Union Welcome Fair

The Welcome Fair is one of the biggest events of the year. Last year we saw over 10,000 students attend the Fair to find out more about opportunities at Queen Mary, join Clubs and Societies and grab loads of freebies from local and national companies! The Fair will be taking place on Wednesday 18th September (11am-5pm) and Thursday 19th September (10am-4pm) in the Great Hall, Sports Hall and Students’ Union Hub.

Get information on the student wellbeing services available to you at Queen Mary, GP registration, free Meningitis ACWY and Measles, Mumps and Rubella (MMR) vaccinations if you are between 18 and 25 years and have not had them already, as well as advice on sexual health, drug and alcohol use, and staying safe and healthy while at university.

Moving Around Campus

Two students walking by the canal To help you move around our campus, Queen Mary’s buildings consistently follow the same room numbering process:

  • Building name, Floor number, Room number

For example, if you have a session in Bancroft 3.26, this means that you are in room 26 on the third floor of the Bancroft Building.

Further information on buildings and lecture theatres can be found on the Student Enquiry Centre website and you can find campus maps here. [Should we put a picture of the campus map here too?]

QMUL Mobile App

Download the Queen Mary app (available on iOS and Android), which has lots of helpful information, from course details to a campus map. You can also access it as a web app.

Check out this Transitions Guide [PDF 4,346KB] that will help you and your peers address some important things that aren’t usually talked about, but are important to think about at this transition point in your life.
