Where is Queen's?

Known as the “Queen’s Quarter”, the area surrounding our campus is the most vibrant district of Belfast, the capital city of Northern Ireland. Here, you’ll find everything from museums and art galleries to world cuisine, as well as your classes of course, all within easy walking distance. The beauty of Belfast is that you’re never far from beaches, forests and mountains if you need some headspace. If the landscapes and landmarks look familiar, it’s because many of them have featured in Game of Thrones. Top day-tripping spots include the Giant’s Causeway, the Mourne Mountains and, of course, Derry/Londonderry for the ‘Derry Girls’ experience including a visit to the iconic mural of the Channel 4 show.


Northern Ireland’s has the lowest student cost of living in the UK (Which? University, 2018), making Belfast a great city to live in when you’re a student.

Belfast has won awards for its affordable living, and rent in the popular Queen’s Quarter is rarely more than £50-£60 a week.

In this exciting hub of music, food, shopping and culture, you’ll also pay less for things like travel, cinema tickets and going out.

Moving to Northern Ireland

Did you know that Queen’s University is only a one hour flight away from most cities in England, Scotland and Wales?

In fact, Belfast has excellent travel connections, and the cost of getting to Queen’s University is typically cheaper and quicker than travelling to other universities in England, Scotland or Wales.

GB students are guaranteed university accommodation in first year and our Residential Life Team organise regular socials and trips throughout each semester to help you make friends, explore Northern Ireland and settle in.
