When it comes to study space, you’ll have plenty of options – Queen Mary has three libraries across its four London campuses. The largest and most popular place to study among our students is located at Mile End.

Open 24/7 during the academic year, the library recently underwent a £1.5m refurbishment which included:

  • a new active learning and study centre
  • a 57-seat training room and a range of additional group study and consultation rooms
  • a new 35-seat silent PC room
  • a new 69-seat silent postgraduate taught reading room.

It also offers a range of services, including free laptop loans and secure charging boxes. Our expert librarians can help you find information on specific topics. 

Our library services support both taught and research students. This includes the study Skills Collection, which provides resources to help students develop key skills. Home to Queen Mary Archives, the library holds institutional and personal archives as well as rare prints, dating from the 17th century to the present day, providing evidence for research in the arts, humanities and social sciences. 

In addition to the library facilities across our three campuses, all Queen Mary students have access to the University of London’s central facilities, including the iconic Senate House library in Bloomsbury. This includes reference use, borrowing and access to a wide range of electronic journals and subject-specific databases.
