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.
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.
