Current Students with Disabilities

Do you have a newly diagnosed or newly acquired disability? Did you register with the Disabilities Services Office (DSO) last year? Are you studying at Queen's but not on campus?

Getting Started

If you believe you may require academic accommodations, both new and returning students, on campus, or distance students should contact the Disability Services Office (DSO). The DSO can assist you in connecting with those services, supports, and resources within the Queen's community.

Student Government - The Alma Mater Society (AMS)

The Alma Mater Society of Queen’s University (AMS) is Canada’s oldest undergraduate student government. Its constitution takes precedence over all other student societies and organizations to which its members may belong. The AMS was incorporated in 1969 as a non-profit organization without share capital. Undergraduates obtain membership upon paying the mandatory student activity fee along with their tuition.

Social Issues Commission (SIC)

The Social Issues Commissioner’s position involves supporting committees, briefing and advising AMS Council on equity issues, holding workshops for the student body and AMS services, sitting on various University committees, advocating and lobbying for anti-oppression action with Queen’s Administration. They also maintain the SIC office and answer students’ questions.
