QMU'S INNOVATIVE CAMPUS
SUPERB CAMPUS FACILITIES
Our modern campus opened in Autumn 2007 and is a vibrant academic village with high-tech buildings and attractive landscaped spaces, featuring an innovative learning resource centre at the heart of the development.
The campus includes student residences, a student union building, indoor sports facilities and all weather surfaces, a variety of catering outlets, a shop and landscaped gardens with a range of environmental features. The design takes full account of the needs of today's students. Students were consulted throughout the relocation project, from involvement in the choice of site and input into the design of buildings, to decisions on the types of catering facilities on campus. There is appropriate disabled access to residences and academic buildings.
A PURPOSE-BUILT STUDENT UNION AND SPORTS FACILITIES
The student union includes plenty of social
spaces, a café, an events area and a games room. Sports facilities include a fitness suite, astroturf suitable for 5-a-side or 7-a-side football, sports hall - 4 badminton court sized and an exercise studio.
MODERN STUDENT RESIDENCES
Accommodation is onsite for 800 students (undergraduate and postgraduate). These highly modern rooms have an en-suite. There are shared kitchen and lounge facilities. Internet connection points
AN ATTRACTIVE LOCAL AREA
You will find the campus conveniently situated
for leisure and shopping facilities. Musselburgh, an attractive seaside
town on the eastern edge of Edinburgh, is a short walk away, and offers
an appealing mix of shops, cafés, bars and leisure facilities, including
a theatre and the famous racecourse. The Fort Kinnaird shopping complex
is also within walking distance, and includes an extensive range of retail
outlets, plus a multi-screen cinema and bowling alley.

Queen Margaret aims to be a central part of the local community and local people are closely
involved in the development of plans for the new campus. If you have ideas about how we can work with
the community, contact the Marketing & Communications Office.
