A Campus University at the heart of Belfast City
Queen's is at the heart of Belfast's culture, as well as its art and social scenes. We're proud to be part of a bustling, cosmopolitan city boasting a vibrant social life and rich cultural heritage.
An award-winning library
Queen's has invested over £50m in the McClay Library, blending the best features of a traditional library with the latest technology.
Facilities include computing and media services, IT training rooms, quiet study and group work areas, a cafe, a Language Centre and a vast range of printed works.
Across health sciences laboratories, business, engineering and computing.
Including a financial Trading Room with Bloomberg terminals, interdisciplinary health and life sciences research facilities and innovative engineering hubs.
Investing in your future
Over the past decade Queen's has invested over £350m in the improvement of facilities, including the Centre for Cancer Research and Cell Biology, Queen's Management School and the William J Clinton Leadership Institute at Riddel Hall.
Substantial investment in our facilities has developed our historic campus into an innovative learning environment for our students and staff.
The investment is ongoing with new School of Biological Sciences and School of Mathematics and Physics buildings, currently under construction.
Plans are also underway to build a world-class Student Centre.
An extraordinary University experience
Our Students’ Union, societies and clubs will help you to meet and make friends with other students and feel part of campus life. Over 200 clubs and societies are a great way to meet friends, discover new talents, and get a break from studying.
Arts at Queen's
The University boasts the award-winning Naughton Gallery, one of Belfast’s most exciting art spaces.
The Seamus Heaney Centre for Poetry reinforces the University’s reputation as a world literary power, while the Brian Friel Centre for Theatre Research is a world-class studio theatre for performing arts students.
A boutique cinema on campus
Film fans will be impressed by Queen’s very own, full-time cinema, the Queen’s Film Theatre (QFT).
Presenting the best in classic and new world cinema, it's a unique cultural venue, with almost 50 years of experience, it brings high-quality film experience to Belfast audiences in a friendly intimate space.
"I love the old buildings and the fact that everything is close by. It's about a 15-minute walk to the city centre and there are always things to do at night."Adam Bunting
Business Information Technology
Situated within Botanic Gardens, directly beside the main Queen's campus, the Ulster Museum is a serene architectural and cultural space.
The Museum is home to historical artefacts, relics, works of art, photographic exhibitions, wonders of nature and famously, an Egyptian mummy, Takabuti.
A hugely popular part of south Belfast, Botanic Gardens is great for a short stroll, a wander around the Victorian Palm House or a lie on the grass.
A hive of activity and a riot of colour in the summer months, the Gardens are immaculately maintained all year round and are home to numerous varieties of trees, bushes, shrubs and flowers.
