In-Person Campus Tours

Please note: In-person tours will be unavailable September 3-17 inclusive. Information about our self-guided tour and virtual tour are available below.

In preparation for residence move-in, residence tours will not be available after Monday, August 29th until late September. 

We are happy to announce that in-person campus tours have resumed and are available by registration only.

Queen’s continues to strongly encourage everyone to receive updated vaccinations and boosters, as these remain the best way to protect yourself and the community against serious illness from COVID-19.

A list of available tour dates can be found below. Note that if a date is "sold out" we are unable to add your name to a waitlist. 

Tours last approximately 1 1/2 to 2 hours, so please dress for the weather and bring comfortable footwear.

Tours leave from the front entrance of Gordon Hall (74 Union Street West). Please do not arrive more than 15 minutes before your tour time. Tour guides will meet attendees in front of the building to check them in. More information on directions to campus and parking can be found here.

Additional Resources

As we continue to augment our campus tours experience, we have collected a number of videos and images that will help you get a sense of what the inside of campus is like. While this site was originally tailored to our incoming Class of 2024, the video and imagery is still helpful as you consider Queen’s. Note that this content was created before COVID-19 became a factor in our lives. They show our beautiful campus and our close-knit community.

We are all very much looking forward to welcoming our prospective students and families back to campus!
