On Campus Housing

Queen Mary Students’ Union has over 40 sports clubs ranging from Aikido to Hockey, Fencing to Rowing. The Students’ Union has recently undergone a multi-million pound refurbishment, so in addition to the sports hall and squash court, there’s a brand new Health and Fitness Centre, QMotion. QMotion is home to a whole range of gym equipment including a cardiovascular zone, a resistance zone, and free weights. You can use these facilities with the expert advice of fully trained gym instructors. There’s also a women-only gym area, as well as yoga and pilates classes. Membership for the Health and Fitness Centre is at subsidised low rates for students.
