Living in residential Kingston is an important part of university life for the majority of Queen's students. The neighbourhoods around campus are diverse; they house students, University staff and faculty, and other Kingstonians.
The focus of this section is to provide you with tools and information for living year-round as members of the Kingston community. To keep up-to-date on local City of Kingston news that is relevant to students, you can sign up for the City's student mailing list.
For students living in Residence, please see the Residences website for more information.
Student community relations
An important resource for any Queen's student living in Kingston is Queen's Student Community Relations, a department within Student Affairs.
Student Community Relations has the answers to most of your pressing questions about rentals and city life. The office is located in the John Deutsch University Centre (JDUC), room 135.
