Campus Lifestyle

At Queen Mary, you get the safety and security of campus life, while living in one of the most exciting parts of London.

Most of our undergraduate students are based in Mile End which is set alongside the surprisingly green and peaceful Regent’s Canal, with medicine and dentistry students situated a short walk away at our Whitechapel campus. 

We’re one of the few campus-based universities in London – especially this close to central London. I think that’s really nice. It’s still open to the public but you’re not right in the middle of the city and it’s a nice space to learn in because of it.

Mile End campus

Our Mile End campus offers a community where you can live, relax and study. We have two shops, four cafés, two restaurants, a bar, a gym, a bookshop and a bank on site. There’s plenty of green and outdoor space, but you’re only minutes away from Central London’s bustling streets.

There are nearly 2,500 rooms in self-catering residences on or near the Mile End campus and we are just a five minute walk away from Mile End and Stepney Green Tube stations.

Whitechapel campus

Our medicine and dentistry students have their own campus at Whitechapel, next to the Royal London Hospital. Whitechapel is a vibrant area, famous for its street market, variety of curry houses and the Whitechapel Gallery. The campus has its own library, state-of-the-art labs at the Blizard Institute and a Students Union with a cafe, bar, computers and bookshop. But you can also use all the facilities at the Mile End campus, which is ten minutes up the road.

Lincoln Inn’s Fields campus

Most of Queen Mary’s postgraduate law students are based in our Lincoln’s Inn Fields campus in Holborn. This area is the historic legal centre of London, near to the Royal Courts of Justice. It’s also close to Covent Garden and the West End of London.

Charterhouse Square campus

Situated in the heart of the City of London, our Charterhous Square campus is home to the Barts Cancer Institute, the William Harvey Research Institute and the Wolfson Institute of Preventive Medicine. You’ll be near to the Barbican Arts Centre, the Museum of London and other famous London landmarks.
