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.
"I was pleasantly surprised by the cost of living in Belfast. The student halls are very cheap in comparison to other UK universities accommodation. You can feed yourself for very little which means you’ve more money to do other things in Belfast." Jacob Robinson,

“I chose to study at Queen’s because I wanted the independence of living away from home but with the convenience of being a 45 minute flight away from home. I was also aware that Belfast was one of the cheapest cities for students and the GB student scholarship provided many benefits, such as financial support towards flights home. I also thought it would be interesting to study sociology in a post-conflict society” Shona Allen,
