Parking Map


During SOAR, attendees can park for free in two designated parking lots on campus, the Tindall and Union/Division parking lots. SOAR staff members will be on hand in each parking lot (look for the tricolour umbrellas!) to distribute parking passes, which MUST be displayed on your dashboard to avoid getting a parking ticket.

Which parking lot should you choose? The Union/Division parking lot is closer to the building in which SOAR programming is held, but often fills up. The Tindall parking lot provides a guaranteed spot, and a nice walk through Queen's beautiful campus.


Stay on campus during your SOAR visit, and experience a little bit of Queen's life! Our premium accommodation option, at a price of $99* per night for SOAR attendees, is a great deal. These newly built 2-bedroom units include a private washroom, extra-long double bed in each bedroom, flat screen TV, mini-fridge, free wi-fi, and more!

Please book your on campus accommodations online, and use the promo code: SOAR to get the special $99 rate. You are also able to contact the summer accommdations office at 613-533-2223 ext. 0 during business hours, Monday-Friday, and quote the promo code: SOAR1.
