What to do before you arrive at Queen's
2. Find your graduate department or graduate program office
- Get to know your graduate assistant - she can answer any questions you may have about forms, etc. Graduate department or program hours are usually Monday to Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
- Find your mailbox and check it regularly. Find out if you need a key for the graduate student office
- Find out your eligibility and when grant applications (SSHRC, NSERC, CIHR, etc.) are due at the department or program office
- Ask if your graduate program or department offers funding assistance to students presenting at academic conferences
3. Check out the Library and information technology resources
- All graduate students have access, by application, to study carrels in the Stauffer Library. All graduate students are provided with university computing accounts, which provides access to the internet, e-mail, and various software applications provided free to students under a university license. These accounts also enable students to use the Queen's Library online research resources, which comprise numerous databases, online publications, journal archives, and reference works. The Libraries have outlets at the study stations for plugging in laptops.
- ITS/Information Technology Services assists incoming students with office computer queries, internet and networks, NetID and directories, software and hardware services, learning resources, and other technology related matters. See here for additional ITS information.
You can submit your technology issue using the online support form.
