Section 35 of the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act requires the University to establish a reading room where manuals, and policies used by officers of the University are publicly available. Queen's University has a large library that is open to the public, but to make our reading room material as widely accessible as possible, we have launched this electronic reading room on the web for convenience. Below you will find links to University policies grouped by broad subject matter.
Senate, Board of Trustees and University Council Policies and Procedures
