Founded by Queen Victoria, Queen's University was designed as a non-denominational alternative to the Anglican-controlled Trinity College in Dublin. The beautiful campus contains more than 250 buildings, 120 of which are famous for their architectural merit. The Queen's University campus is located in the beautiful south side of Belfast, right beside the "Golden Mile." This is the city's best-known and most lively thoroughfare, packed with restaurants, bars, cafes, and cinemas. The city has experienced a resurgence of public and private development, an optimism fueled by the peace process.
