Queen's University Belfast is a public research university in the capital of Northern Ireland, Belfast. It received its charter in 1849 and began as Queen's College Belfast, having roots in the even older Royal Belfast Academical Institution, founded in 1810. Today it is a member of the Russell Group as well as the Association of Commonwealth Universities and the European University Association.
There are some 1200 international students attend the university each year from over 80 countries around the world. Queen's is one of the few to have a dedicated facility for international students, the International and Postgraduate Centre (I&PSC) which forms a comprehensive and proactive support infrastructure for international students. This includes a range of advice and guidance as well as providing information to help those from outside the UK make the most of their time in the country. The heart of student life is the Students Union at Queen's or QUBSU, with its main building opposite the Lanyon Building on University Road. Students are automatically members, making it one of the largest unions in the UK and it provides a range of different services. There is full-time staff available to help with advice matters such as money and welfare as well services such as a shop, canteen and coffee shop. There are four bars in the building, Mandela Hall being the largest. There are 50 sporting clubs and another 100 non-sporting clubs for students to participate in. The oldest is the Literary and Scientific Society, established in 1850 by Edwin Lawrence Godkin. The Dragonslayers Gaming Society holds one of the largest gaming conventions in Ireland, Q-Con, in June each year while the Mountaineering Club has produced three Everest summiteers including Ireland's first, Dawson Stelfox. One of the most successful sporting clubs is the Queen's Boat Club while the Gaelic Football team has won several trophies.
The main campus is at the heart of one of the seven cultural districts of Belfast, known as Queen's Quarter. There is no campus in the modern sense and the buildings cover a number of public streets centred on University Road, University Square and Stranmillis Road. This means the facilities at the heart of the city are around 15 minutes away by foot in addition to the immediate features of the area. The university is also one of the largest employers in Northern Ireland with a total workforce of nearly 4,000 people. The university is responsible for a number of significant cultural events during the year including the Belfast Festival at Queen's and the Belfast Film Festival. It operates the only arthouse cinema in Northern Ireland as well as an art gallery, the Naughton Gallery. Housing is on offer for both undergraduates and postgraduates, though many from the city choose to live at home due to the city's compact nature. Around a third of students live in private accommodation and just 10% in university maintained housing. There is a purpose built student village called Elms Village on Malone Road to the south of the campus as well as houses around the city.
