Your university education is about more than classes and assignments.
At Queen’s we’re dedicated to making your experience complete – offering support, resources and opportunities to take part in social, athletic and community activities.
"Oil Thigh" popular name for a Gaelic chorus that translates as "the College of the Queen forever no surrender!"
There's a reason Queen's is one of the top-ranked universities in Canada. Our students, our faculty, our staff, our campus - they all contribute to what we call the Queen's experience.
Queen's students are defined by their passion for excellence, their motivation to excel and their readiness to change the world. Perhaps that is the reason Queen's attracts the best students from across Canada and around the world.
Last year our student body represented 95 countries, along with every Canadian province and territory. At Queen's you will meet people from every walk of life. There will be people just like you and many more who will challenge you to think beyond the boundaries of your mind and experience.
The members of Queen's faculty are more than just world experts and educators.
To many students, they are mentors, intellectual sparring partners - and sometimes, an opponent or team member in a game of foosball or squash.
Our faculty regularly receive international recognition and numerous teaching awards for their research and innovative contributions. Their expertise and high standards inspire students to make a real difference.
Located on Lake Ontario, steps from the waterfront and Kingston's vibrant downtown, our campus offers the perfect blend of leading edge facilities and small-town comfort. From world-class digitally wired and wireless classrooms to multi-million dollar labs, Queen's has the resources you'll need to excel.
It's easy to become part of our community - and if you need a big city fix, you're only a few short hours away from Toronto, Ottawa and Montreal.
When you graduate from Queen's, you become part of a living and evolving tradition that spans the globe and 167 years. The friendships you form here will be carried with you for a lifetime. Queen's graduates are found in boardrooms, courtrooms, governments, hospitals, art galleries, laboratories and libraries around the world.
Our alumni return to campus frequently to mentor and inspire the next generation of Queen's alumni. You'll meet them at various events during your time at Queen's, and you'll also be the beneficiary of their generosity to the school.
