The Queen's Women's Association

The Queen’s Women’s Association, originally established as the Faculty Women’s Club in 1939, is located in a comfortably furnished brick house at 144 Albert Street. It is a meeting and networking place for women who hold or whose spouse/partner holds a position at Queen’s University, as well as for those who have held or whose spouse/partner has held a position at Queen’s in the past.

The QWA provides a means of social interaction for its members, works cooperatively with Queen’s University to foster a collegial atmosphere on the campus, and supports women students at Queen’s University by funding bursaries and awards.

The Association’s objectives are:

  • To strengthen bonds between members of the QWA and Queen’s University.

  • To enhance collegial life at Queen’s University by providing congenial surroundings in which members can participate in social, intellectual and cultural activities.

  • To help facilitate projects relating to Queen’s University which are of interest to QWA members.

  Membership Reception is held at Summerhill in September.
New and renewing members are invited to attend.
