Arriving in Malta

The Republic of Malta is made up of three main islands: Malta, Gozo and Comino. The QMUL Malta Campus and our Hillock Residences student accommodation are located on Gozo. Malta International Airport (MLA) near Luqa serves all international flights into and out of Malta, and has direct connections with many European capitals as well as other international cities.

A frequent, 20 minute ferry service carries passengers and vehicles between Malta and Gozo. Ferries are boarded via the ferry terminals at Cirkewwa (Malta) and Mgarr (Gozo). An interesting fact about the ferry service is that you do not need a ticket to enter the ferry on the Malta side as all tickets are “returns” and purchased at the Mgarr terminal on your departure from Gozo. Timetable and other information can be found on the Gozo Channel website: https://www.gozochannel.com/

Free Student Airport Collections

During welcome week, there will be a free airport meet and greet service for new students. Dates of this service will be announced in the near future. University staff will meet new students at the airport, and free transport will be provided direct to your student accommodation at Hillock. University staff will be in attendance to show you to your apartment, assist with check in, and answer any questions you may have.

Arriving by Car 

If you intend to arrive at Hillock by car, there is on-street parking nearby. Please refer to the maps near the bottom of this page for full address details and location information. Please inform our Accommodation Services team (residency-malta@qmul.ac.uk) in advance that you intend to make your own way to your accommodation, so that University staff can meet you upon your arrival at Hillock.

Transport Between Hillock & the University

Included in the cost of your accommodation is a daily transport service between Hillock and the University for the duration of your stay. Transport timings are matched with student timetables and upon arrival at Hillock our staff will explain the welcome week transport schedule to you.

Before You Arrive

Before you can move into your room you will be required to have signed a sub-lease agreement for the duration of your stay and to have paid your first terms rent and returnable damage deposit fee. You should obtain insurance for your personal belongings which should cover accidental damage. The University cannot make any recommendations regarding insurance companies and you should find one that suits your own particular requirements.
