London is one of the world's truly international cities and dominates British life as the center for government, law, business, finance, the arts, and popular culture. For its inhabitants and visitors, London offers unrivaled cultural and social opportunities.
Queen Mary's student population is representative of the cultural diversity found in London's East End—almost half of Queen Mary's 17,000 students hail from countries other than the UK. Off the tourist track but with easy access to the rest of the city, the East End allows you to become a part of a modern representation of the international community that now makes up the city.
You will live in single rooms with shared kitchen facilities in on-campus residence halls. Choose between a standard room (single room with a sink) or an en-suite room (single room with private bath). You will share a floor with six to ten other British and international students. There is no meal plan; you will generally prepare meals in the residence halls or eat at local restaurants. There is a difference in cost between standard and en-suite housing; refer to the budget estimate and Queen Mary's Accommodations page for further details.
Queen Mary has an active social life, and visiting students are encouraged to further integrate into campus life joining one of several student clubs and organizations.
