Queen Mary grew from the great charitable institutions of London's East End, with a history dating back to 1785. Our reformer heritage informs our conviction that great ideas can and should come from anywhere. It’s an approach that has brought results across the globe, from the communities of east London to the favelas of Rio de Janeiro.


Queen Mary offers outstanding students a stimulating, supportive and high-quality learning experience, with teaching inspired by their world-leading research. They have also invested more than £250m in new facilities over the last fifteen years to offer our students an exceptional learning environment. This is reflected in the consistently high levels of student satisfaction. In the most recent National Student Survey (NSS 2014), 86 per cent of the undergraduates expressed 'overall satisfaction' with their time here, with eight subjects in the top ten nationally,nine subjects rated as top in London, and 20 out of 28 subjects in the top five in London.


Queen Mary has made a strategic commitment to the highest quality of research. They have invested in this principle by systematically recruiting the best academics in their disciplines from around the world. Overall we were ranked 9th in the UK among multi-faculty universities and 5th in the UK for the percentage of our 3 and 4 research outputs.

Located alongside the historic Regent’s Canal, it has everything you need to live, study and socialise, from cafes, bars and a nightclub to a 24-hour library, computer labs and sports facilities. We also have campuses at Whitechapel, Charterhouse Square and West Smithfield for medicine and dentistry students. When you live on or near our campuses, you’ll be just minutes from your classes and the social hub of Queen Mary.

Sports facilities

Overlooking the Regents Canal, the student village at Mile End has lots of green space, and contains contemporary accommodation, a shop, a launderette, cafés, a bar and a Santander bank branch. Based at Mile End, the Queen Marys Students Union organises social and sporting activities, and is one of the most active students unions in the University of London. A state-of-the-art health and fitness centre allows the students to balance their academic studies with a healthy lifestyle. The gym includes a ladies-only gym, two studios, a squash court and a sports hall.
