City campuses

At Queen Mary, you get the safety and security of campus life, while living in one of the most exciting parts of London.

Set alongside the Regent’s Canal, our main campus at Mile End is a surprisingly green and peaceful place. We also have campuses at Whitechapel, Charterhouse Square and West Smithfield for medicine and dentistry students. Postgraduate law students have a campus at Lincoln’s Inn Fields.

The Mile End campus has great facilities, is very beautiful and green, and is located alongside the Regent's Canal and the Mile End Park.

What can you do on our Mile End campus?


Whitechapel campus

Our medicine and dentistry students have their own campus at Whitechapel, next to the Royal London Hospital. Whitechapel is a vibrant area, famous for its street market, variety of curry houses and the Whitechapel Gallery. The campus has its own library, state-of-the-art labs at the Blizard Institute and a Students Union with a cafe, bar, computers and bookshop. But you can also use all the facilities at the Mile End campus, which is ten minutes up the road.

Charterhouse Square campus

Situated in the heart of the City of London, our Charterhous Square campus is home to the Barts Cancer Institute, the William Harvey Research Institute and the Wolfson Institute of Preventive Medicine. You’ll be near to the Barbican Arts Centre, the Museum of London and other famous London landmarks.

Lincoln Inn’s Fields campus

Most of Queen Mary’s postgraduate law students are based in our Lincoln’s Inn Fields campus in Holborn. This area is the historic legal centre of London, near to the Royal Courts of Justice. It’s also close to Covent Garden and the West End of London.

West Smithfield campus

Our West Smithfield campus is for medicine and dentistry students. It includes St Bartholomew's hospital (Barts) and the West Smithfield Medical Library. It also has some of Queen Mary’s cardiovascular, cancer, epidemiology and public health research facilities.

Having a campus is amazing, especially within London. It’s like you’re in your own little bubble while the whole city goes on around you.
