Students' Union

The Students’ Union (QMSU) works hard to keep our students happy and busy during their time at Queen Mary. There are over 300 diverse societies and 60 sports clubs for you to join, plus a host of events and activities organised throughout the year.

In addition to clubs and societies, facilities include:

  • The Students' Union Hub – home to the Students' Union Reception, The Nest, Hub social space, Student Media suite and bookable spaces for student groups and societies.
  • Ground Café – a high street style café in the heart of the Mile End campus. Situated behind the Library, Ground Café offers excellent fresh coffee, ice-cold frappés and soft drinks. They serve a variety of toasted handmade paninis, flatbreads and wraps or indulgent cakes, muffins and treats. It’s the perfect place to hang out between lectures, have a group study session or catch up with friends.
  • Village Shop – is your one-stop shop offering a great selection of leading brands from Heinz to Stella Artois as well as a comprehensive selection of Co-op grocery products. It feels just like a mini supermarket with the added benefit of being on campus and offers great promotional deals throughout the year. There is also a photo booth for passport photos and identify cards and a wide range of specialist international groceries are also available.
  • Drapers Bar & Kitchen – is the most popular place on campus to grab some food or a drink, furnished to provide a relaxed environment for students and staff to work and socialise with friends. The menu offers good range of quality food and options for those with special dietary requirements, and the kitchen is open until 8.30pm each day.
  • Multi-Faith Centre – is situated in the Students' Union Hub at the Mile End campus. Its two large rooms and adjacent washing facilities are designed as places of prayer, worship and reflection and are shared by students and staff of all faiths and beliefs.
