Equality and Diversity

When we say Queen Mary's College is for everyone, we mean it.  QMC is an inclusive place, where individuals can be valued and aspire to meet their potential whoever they are. Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion have evolved significantly, and we continue to evolve with it.  

We want to ensure that the college is consciously aware of any inequality, ensuring that diversity is not only celebrated, but reflected throughout the College community, and we want to actively engage in the process of people feeling supported to be who they are.QMC is a safe place for everyone and what is at the heart of it is kindness, value, and empowerment for all. 

We have related policies which can be found here and more information can be sought from Katherine Bejide, Lead Teacher for Equalities at [email protected]. For more information about policies, alternative formats or access arrangements please contact Sally-Anne Spooner Director: Human Resources & Commercial Operations on 01256 417524, or email [email protected]

Black Lives Matter
The shocking killing of George Floyd has refocused attention on the levels of racism, oppression and inequality experienced daily in this country and across the World.

At QMC our commitment to respectfulness means that we all have a responsibility to challenge discrimination and intolerance whenever and wherever we witness it. Unless we all speak out and join voices with the Black Lives Matter movement in calling for a better world, nothing will change.
Whilst it is unarguable that “All Lives Matter,” the experience for the majority of people from black and minority ethnic (BAME) communities is that their lives appear to matter less; in health, education, justice, employment there are very clear inequalities in the UK, as well as elsewhere around the world.
As an inclusive College we are committed to improving life chances, and recognize the power of education in creating a fairer and more harmonious future.
Our students are the future, and we stand together to champion justice and to oppose racism and discrimination as a united community.


The College is located on a beautiful 30 acre site set amongst woodland. There are several marked ‘disability friendly’ parking spaces across the site and ramped or level access to all buildings. Within much of the accommodation ramps or lifts are available internally. Many doorways are double width and have automatic opening doors. We have endeavoured to place appropriate and clear signage at key points across the site. We also have accessible ‘disability friendly’ toilet facilities available.

If you wish to book any of the facilities available please contact the Community Lettings Team for more information on 01256 417500, if you wish to visit the site please contact Premises at [email protected] for more information. If you have any concerns regarding accessing the site for your studies please speak to Barbara Dossett, Student Health and Welfare Advisor about individual arrangements. If you have any other comments, questions or feedback about the site please contact Jilly Smith, Premises Co-ordinator on 01256 51700 ext 5400 or email [email protected]
