So you may be wondering ‘what’s on campus?’ (other than lecture theatres, accommodation halls and of course the library!). Well, there’s plenty of places to visit here on the QM Mile End Campus, ranging from places to eat/drink or even just a nice place to chill with friends.
Here are just a few great places worth exploring on campus (here’s the map):
The Ground Cafe– If you ever need a quick coffee, a snack or even just a place to sit and chat to a friend then the Ground is the perfect place. Inside the Ground you’ve got plenty of places to sit, it’s got one of the most comfy sofas on campus (Believe me, you wouldn’t want to get up again!) and there’s always a friendly staff eager to help. If you’re lucky enough, you may also be able to get a job there yourself! It is located between the library and the Hive making it the ideal place to go to after a long day at the library!
Mucci’s– This is the place to go to have some lovely breakfast, lunch or even brunch! There’s plenty of great Italian dishes, including vegetarian options. Pasta, pizza, you name it! Mucci’s is just opposite the library. So you won’t miss it! Give it a try 🙂
Mile End Canal Side – Enjoy the beautiful view whilst you sit and relax by the canal side! It’s the perfect spot to visit on a lovely warm day. It’s also a great place to escape to, once you’ve had enough of studying in the library! It’s a place to enjoy the fresh air, chill with friends and simply just take a break from studying.
The Students’ Union Hub– This is a great indoor place to chill out with friends, located just behind the students’ union reception. The Hub has a small football table and there are various board games, so if you’re ever bored there is always something to do! Inside the Hub, there is also a microwave, so if you bring in food from home, there’s a place to warm them up! There is also a water fountain so you can fill your water bottle up whenever you need to! You’ll also meet various members of the students’ union there, so feel free to introduce yourself and have a chat with them! (They won’t bite)
The Curve – This place serves everything, from breakfast, lunch to dinner! Why not pop in and try some of the freshly made hot meals, served every day! The Curve is also a nice place to sit indoors with friends during breaks and eat/drink. It Is located just before the Canal side and under the green blocks of QM residential halls. It’s a popular place for students, so you won’t miss it!
Student Village Shop and Infusion – These two places are located in two completely different places (the Student Village Shop is located just opposite the canals, whilst Infusion is located beside the Gym) but both are amazing places to either get some snacks, stationery or just some general bits and pieces. It’s pretty cheap! The Infusion now also has a selection of hot meals and hot drinks available for on the go!
QMotion (Also known as the Gym)– The Gym is the perfect place to take a break from all the studying. QMotion has a range of facilities such as treadmills, X trainers and cycles. If you don’t want to use the Gym, then don’t worry! You might want to pop in and try out one of the weekly sessions of Yoga, Zumba, Pilates and many more. There is always something for every individual!
I hope the above has given you a little more insight of some of the places available on campus. Of course these are not the only places on campus, there is also the Drapers Bar, the Hive, Learning Cafe and perhaps many other places yet to be explored.
