Accommodation Deadline Approaching
Updated 11th July 2017 by Mark
The deadline for 2017-18 IFP students wishing to apply to QMUL accommodation is the 31st of July. QMUL offers IFP students a unique experience, as we are the only Russell Group university with a genuine campus in London. With a room on the same site as your classrooms and lecture theatres, and all of the facilities available to you as a QM student, you get the chance to live in a safe, friendly, and convenient location while all the excitement of London surrounds you!
You can take a virtual tour of Queen Mary accommodation here; please note that not all residences are on campus (some are a very short walk away) but we do ask for as many of our students to be placed within the student village as possible.
To be eligible to apply, you just need to have accepted your offer (even if it’s conditional and you still need to provide more documents), after which you will receive an email from our accommodation office inviting you to start your application (see here for more details).
