Housing

Housing notes

Queen's has over 2,000 rooms available in its University-managed accommodation.  All rooms are self-catered, which means that students share kitchen facilities and make their own meals.  Rooms are either ensuite (with a private shower room) or standard (with a washbasin but students shared bathroom facilities).  All rooms are single study bedrooms.  Some accommodation blocks are for male students only, some are for female students and others are mixed.

There is a limited number of rooms available for students attending for just one semester, therefore, you are advised to submit your application as early as possible. 

If it is necessary for you to seek accommodation in the private sector, we recommend that you arrive a few weeks before your course starts in order to do this.

More information on university accommodation can be found on the Queen's University Student Union website. The Students' Union also has an accommodation noticeboard, located on the second floor, where you can find details of rooms currently available in the University area.
