Queen Mary is the only college in the University of London to have an integrated teaching, research and residential campus. The main Mile End campus is located between the two financial areas of London – ‘The City’ and Docklands – and a mile west of the London 2012 Olympic park. Studying on campus means students have all the benefits of a campus community as well as the limitless opportunities of living in London.

Queen Mary has a reputation for delivering innovative; high-quality teaching to its students at all levels of study. The college also offers English Language and foundation courses preparing international students for both undergraduate and graduate entry. Students are offered an outstanding, stimulating, supportive and high-quality learning experience, with teaching inspired by its world-leading research. More than £250m has been invested in new facilities over the last fifteen years to offer students an exceptional learning environment. This is reflected in consistently high levels of student satisfaction.

Students have access both to the Queen Mary’s modern library and to the collections of the University of London library. On the Mile End campus over 2,000 rooms are available to students, many of them en-suite, with great facilities close by, from a launderette to shops and cafes.

The Advice and Counselling Service and on-campus Health Center offer a range of advice and support services to all students. Queen Mary also offers an airport pick-up service and a comprehensive welcome program to help international students adjust to life at Queen Mary and in London.
