Garrod Building and Whitechapel Library

Garrod is a traditional building with a lecture theatre, seminar and classroom facilities, a café and a student common room. Located in close proximity to The Royal London Hospital, it’s ideal for our medicine and dentistry students.

The Old Library is situated next to Garrod Building on the Queen Mary Whitechapel campus. Based in the Grade II-listed St Augustine with St Philip's Church, Whitechapel Library is the main library for students of the School of Medicine and Dentistry.

Formerly the library of The Royal London Hospital, it is now an exquisite space for studying with an extensive collection of medical school research material. It is also ideal for music-making activities including rehearsals and concerts. Its ceiling is a fine example of Georgian plasterwork, and beautiful stained glass windows have medical themes – a favourite among students. It also houses The Royal London Hospital Museum.
