It is very important that you protect your health while studying at Queen Mary

There is a free Student Health Service available on campus (located in the Geography Building at Mile End Campus). The Student Health Service is provided by Globe Town Surgery. Students living in Queen Mary accommodation at Mile End or Whitechapel and students living in the borough of Tower Hamlets (E1, E2, E3 and E14) are encouraged to register with the Student Health Service. Also, if it is clinically appropriate and practical in your individual case, the SHS offers out of area registration without home visits for the students who live within inner London. Registrations can take place online or at the Student Health Service on campus. You may still need to visit the GP practice to confirm your registration, follow the instructions from the GP practice. 

If you live in Dawson Hall at the Charter House Square campus or outside Tower Hamlets, please ensure that you register with a doctor close to where you live. A list of local doctors is available here.

The Health E1 GP practice in Brick Lane is available for people to register who are sofa surfing, street homeless or in hostel accommodation in the borough of Tower Hamlets.

The Student Health Service provides a complete range of medical services including immunisations, sexual health advice and psychological counselling.

Students with a disability, mental health condition or specific learning difficulty

If you have a disability or long-term medical condition or specific learning difficulty that affects your ability to study effectively, you are advised to contact the Disability and Dyslexia Service to discuss any support that you may be able to access. All queries to the service will be treated in the strictest confidence, although if you will require support we will encourage you to permit us to discuss this with your school or academic department.
