New Students

Welcome Week 2019

Welcome Week is happening now, before teaching starts on Monday the 24th of September. There are activities throughout the week to help you settle into life at university.

We advise you to look at the enrolment pages so that you are prepared with everything you need to fully register for your programme.

You should also attend any programme introduction sessions your school or institute is running for you when you start as these will give you important information about your course.

In addition, you can familiarise yourself with the LibraryIT Services and My.QMUL, the student website. The also run a variety of events throughout the year to encourage students to meet and get to know one another and try new experiences.

On Monday morning at Mile End there is an International Welcome Programme Timetable [PDF 406KB] that will provide International students with support and information that tailored specifically to you.  Students studying in the School of Medicine and Dentistry will have an International Welcome Programme [PDF 644KB] on Tuesday the 18th.

International students can also find specific information, including information on registering with the Police, on the international pre-arrival pages

Check out the video below to find out about what’s going on in Welcome Week and what you need to do, and get tips from current students about starting uni. 


Check out this Transitions Guide [PDF 4,346KB] that will help you and your peers address some important things that aren’t usually talked about, but are important to think about at this transition point in your life.

Moving around campuses

To help you find your way around the campuses and find rooms, Queen Mary operates a standard room numbering process as follows:

  • Building name: Floor number: Room number

For example, if you have a session in Bancroft3.26 this means that you are in room 26 on the third floor of the Bancroft Building.

Further information on buildings and lecture theatres can be found on the Student Enquiry Centre website. You can find campus maps here

QMUL mobile app

If you haven’t already downloaded the QMUL mobile app, we would suggest that you do this for free via your mobile app store (iOS and Android) - just search for 'QMUL'. You can access campus maps (among other things) via the app to help you navigate your way around. You can also access it as a web app.
