Life at Queen's

Starting university can be a daunting time for any student but if you’re coming through Clearing you might feel like you have had even less time to prepare yourself.

Hear directly from some of our students who came to Queen’s through clearing. They talk about everything from Accommodation, Life in Belfast and making friends at Queen’s.

I was guaranteed accommodation at Queen’s

“Coming from England I was actually guaranteed accommodation in the city, so I didn’t have to worry about trying to find a place to live or how I was going to make friends”

“Accommodation at Queen’s is fantastic. It’s really modern and you can have your own bathroom as well if you want. Everything is so clean and fresh”Peter Moor, Huddersfield

Settling In

“The residential advisors are really helpful with helping you make new friends and settling into your accommodation. Elms is one big community full of first years. It’s close enough for you to be able to walk in and still get to your lectures on time”Jude McEvoy, London

Low Cost

“I was pleasantly surprised by the cost of living in Belfast. The accommodation is 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, Newcastle

Belfast and Northern Ireland

“One of the things I love about Belfast is that it’s a big enough city that there’s always something going on but it’s also small enough that you still get the community feeling. There’s always someone there to help if you feel lost or lonely at any time and I don’t think you get that anywhere else”Will Hancock, Carmarthen, Wales

Our Campus

“At Queen’s we have some of the most stunning university buildings in the UK. It looks a bit like Hogwarts so it’s great for Instagram!”Emily Romeril, Bromley

What our students think…

“Freshers’ Week is one of the most important weeks of university. Here at Queen’s the Student’s Union puts on loads of events from nights out to meet-ups, to pizza nights. You’re guaranteed to meet a few people who you’re going to be friends with for the rest of your degree” Emily Romeril, Bromley
