  • Feature Building is Gordon Hall

    Feature Building! Gordon Hall!
    Completed in 1911, it was a gift from the Provincial Government & housed the Department of Chemestry for 90+ years.

    It was named after Rev. Daniel Miner Gordon, Queen's principal from 1902-1917. 
    It now houses the Office of the University Registrar, Queen's Graduate Studies, Career Services, and more.
