QUB offers over 150 sports and recreation societies, so there’s plenty of opportunity for socialising whilst you study. Belfast is also known for its nightlife, with plenty of pubs, clubs and sociable events close to your QUB accommodation.

The main campus is in an ideal location just south of the city centre, with its two university colleges, St Mary’s and Stranmillis, situated nearby.
