Queen’s University is celebrating its 175th anniversary and to help mark the occasion a series of building banners are being placed in prominent locations around campus.

Queen's 175th Anniversary

The banners display the visual identity created for the 175th anniversary celebrations and are being placed directly onto the buildings, much like a giant sticker. Workers from local company Jet Signs have already placed one of the banners on Robert Sutherland Hall, and installed two others on the front facing of Stauffer Library and Walter Light Hall. Upon the completion of the maintenance and repair of the clock tower, another banner will also be featured on Grant Hall.

Queen’s 175th anniversary will launch in September and span the academic year. A mix of special events, new initiatives and existing activities will celebrate Queen’s unique legacy at the national and international level and contribute to the future vision of the university.
