Location & Facilities

Belfast is a thriving cosmopolitan city which retains much of its Victorian and Edwardian character. Historic 19th century architecture now competes with spectacular new developments such as the Waterfront Hall and the Odyssey Arena. Travelling to and from Northern Ireland is easy and economical. Most major British cities are within an hour's flight time from Belfast's two airports. There are dozens of flights each day to and from London, other destinations in the UK, and beyond. Competition means that fares are low.


New investment is changing the face and the atmosphere of Northern Ireland's compact and lively capital. India is also a significant source of investment for Northern Ireland, as over 3,000 people are employed by major Indian companies such as HCL, First Source, Polaris Software Lab, Tech Mahindra and Pix Transmission.

International students at Queen's are guaranteed a room in University accommodation for at least their first year of study. Residences are located within easy walking distance of the University in a pleasant residential area. Not only is Queen's accommodation amongst the best and most modern in the UK, it is also very competitively priced. ( Queen's has excellent facilities including the new Mc Clay Library, the Students' Union and the Physical Education Centre.
