The university is located just 15 minutes from the city center in the beautiful Queen's Quarter of Belfast. Next to the university is a large public park with lush Botanical Gardens as well as the Ulster Museum, the largest and best-known museum in the country. Because of the large student population in the area, a high number of coffee shops, restaurants and pubs are located within walking distance of campus and the dormitories. The Quarter also plays home to arts and cinema festivals, concerts held in the Botanical Gardens as well as many theaters, film houses and art galleries.
