  • West Campus

    Queen’s University has secured $8.9 million in funding to modernize the way the university heats buildings west of main campus with the West Campus District Energy Conversion project, or District Energy project.

    The District Energy project will transform the heating system for more than 700,000 square feet of academic and student residential space, including Duncan McArthur Hall, Jean Royce Halls 1 and 2, and John Orr Tower on west campus as well as the Donald Gordon Centre and the Saint Mary’s of the Lake building.

    Thanks to funding from the Ontario Ministry of Advanced Education and Skill Development, the project has commenced and will be completed by April 2019.
