You can find information about making an application, the current Housing Policy, residential fees, arrival procedures, and guidance on securing family accommodation. The site is designed to provide a comprehensive guide to our residences, but if you have a question that you feel is not addressed, please contact us.
Overview of Residences
Queen Mary University of London currently has 1,879 bedroom places in mixed sex self-catering residences on or near the Mile End Campus. The School of Medicine and Dentistry (and some joint programmes with the School of Biological and Chemical Sciences) have their own dedicated halls of residence with 157 places at the Whitechapel Campus (Floyer House) and 203 places at the Charterhouse Square Campus (Dawson Hall) and will therefore not be offered the option to be housed at the Mile End Campus.
We have a total of 2,239 bed spaces to offer to new applicants at undergraduate and postgraduate level. There are a total of 14 rooms available for wheelchair users at the Mile End campus, with a further 11 rooms for students who are mobility impaired and a total of 18 rooms suitable for hearing impaired students.

Students are required to provide:
- Bed linen, towels, crockery, cutlery and cooking utensils.
Please note: there are no parking facilities available to students living in any Queen Mary residences. However, as a resident you can apply for a local authority parking permit to park in the streets nearby.
Summer vacation accommodation
Students who want accommodation during the summer vacation period will be required to complete a separate application form available from Housing Services in March. Places will be allocated subject to availability, and will not necessarily be in the same room or residence as previously occupied. Priority is given to postgraduate students.
