The university was well appointed with signage to navigate your way as it is spread over a number of streets. we were lucky to get a parking space on the grounds behind the university & this made it easier to find our way about. Alot of history to be found very interesting a good day would love to go back... More

Queen's is close to the Ulster Museum and is well worth have a quick look round. Queen's is a red-bricked chocolate boxy building which takes good fotos if you bring your clapper board hat with you.

Building itself is breathtakingly beautiful, it's easy to see how it inspires so many to study there. The new library is outstanding especially the Narnia room complete with Aslan carpet and the door in to the room is the wardrobe door.

The Queen's University site has many wonderful examples of architecture, with so much history behind it including the extensive alumni who attended over the past 150+ years.

I think it is the most beautiful Tudor building. I come from a country where we do have old buildings, but nothing like this kind of construction. You feel like you're transported back to olden times. If I could start all over again I'd come here and do archaeology. I go here every time I'm in Belfast, and see Queen's... More

The quad and Great Hall have a wonderful atmosphere. It is a busy place, with buidings being modernised and converted. The Students' Union across the road from the main buidings has a convenient shop and a couple of cafes, though it is not beautiful.

Everyone is distracted by Belfast’s answer to Hogwarts – the main building. I say “turn around,” for a far more fabulous place. Elmwood Hall, across the road, was built in 1862 as Elmwood Presbyterian Church to plans by John Corry. Writing in 1967, C.E.B. Brett says Corry was an amateur architect! Well, lack of some professional qualification or maybe proper... More

My daughter is a student in Queens this year so I decided I had to visit. A very impressive building on the outside, it is smaller than I though on the inside. A lovely little gift shop with a very pleasant assistant in it. I guess I was expecting to see lecture rooms, many of them and long corridors with... More

It was a grand walk in the September sunshine from City Hall to this fine institution. The frontage designed by Lanyon looked wonderful, so appealing. Walking past the Queen’s statue took us to the impressive spacious entrance hall. The most notable feature is the Belfast version of The Thinker. There is also a nice stained glass window. The Great Hall... More
