In addition, there are 2 rooms for small classroom accommodated exams on Level 1 (Rooms 126 and 130, on the north west side of the building).

Main exam venues in Mitchell Hall include:

Evacuation Policy

Please do not email the Exams Office. We do not have the information.

Cancellation for Inclement Weather

If adverse weather conditions cause a closure of the University, then an announcement of the official decision to close will be posted on the University website at www.queensu.ca.   

A posted official announcement of the closure means that all examinations scheduled for that particular day (or part thereof) are also cancelled. 

If an examination is cancelled, the instructor of the course will have the authority to decide how to deal with the cancellation of the exam and its effect on the course.  Information will be posted on the Department/Faculty website as soon as possible after the cancellation.
