  • As the cultural, political and business centre of the UK, London attracts people from all over the globe. The city is filled with exciting activities and attractions plus high-profile events including concerts, exhibitions and festivals. Scientists might be interested in visiting the Wellcome Collection or the Natural History Museum, while fans of the humanities can head to the British Museum or take a stroll down the South Bank to visit the Tate Modern and the Globe.
  • QMUL's campuses are surrounded by some of London's hidden gems: it is easy to walk down a residential street and find a hidden garden square, contemporary artwork or an atmospheric Victorian pub serving good food.
  • London also has excellent links to the rest of the UK with many locations just a short trip away, making them ideal for day trips – Brighton, Margate and Epping Forest all offer a change of scenery away from the hustle and bustle of the metropolis.

Culture and Nightlife

  • The Students' Union bar, Drapers, provides a relaxed environment for students and staff to take a break from work and socialise with friends. As well as offering excellent food options, Drapers is also home to popular weekly events including Hail Mary, Monday's Calling and Quiz Nights.
  • QMUL's location provides the perfect excuse to take a break from studying and explore the quirky museums, contemporary art galleries, pop-up restaurants, bars, vintage shops, markets and independent cinemas that give east London its unique character. Local attractions popular with students include Brick Lane, the Whitechapel Gallery, Boxpark Shoreditch, the Mile End Climbing Wall and the local independent cinema, Genesis.
  • The university is also one stop on the Tube from Stratford, home to the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and one of Europe's biggest urban shopping centres, Westfield Stratford City.


  • QMUL campuses stretch across east and central London – close to Shoreditch and Brick Lane, the Tech City technology cluster, and the financial centres of Canary Wharf and the City. Undergraduate students are either based at the main campus in Mile End or in Whitechapel, both of which are in travel Zone 2.
  • A good public transport network of tube, mainline train services and buses make all campuses easily accessible. From Mile End station on the underground it's just five minutes to Liverpool Street and 15 minutes to Oxford Circus.
  • Many QMUL students commute from home – the university's Commuters' Society helps students to expand their social circles and discover exciting new places across the city.
  • As a major commuter city, London has good connections across the rest of the UK.
