About the Accommodation
Pre-semester students usually stay in University accommodation. For new students, The Queen's Elms Halls of Residence are the sensible choice. They are ideal for making friends and settling quickly into university life.
The Queen’s Elms are situated 15 minutes walk from the main campus. The site is in a quiet location yet only two miles from the centre of Belfast, four miles from Belfast City Airport (with connections to London Heathrow), 20 miles from Belfast International Airport, and three miles from ferry terminals.
The accommodation options are single rooms with a wash-hand basin and shared shower facilities on each floor or ensuite rooms with internet access. Both types of room are in self-catered halls. For a 360 degree view of the university's accommodation, please click here.
Breakfast is normally served between 8.00–9.00 a.m.
There will be a self-service laundry at your accommodation.
