Enrichment Service Unit

For over 30 years, the Queen’s Enrichment Studies Unit (ESU) has been connecting students in Grades 5-12 with challenging and inspiring academics while enriching their potential. Students take three unique academic workshops, live in residence, eat in dining halls, and participate in engaging evening activities. There are a variety of course disciplines to choose from - everything from Pathology, Engineering, to Web Development, and Medieval History. Registration opens early December for two camps which are offered in May and August each year. Queen's alumni can use the promo code QFAMILY to receive a 10 percent discount on all of ESU programs. 


Email for Life for Alumni

Keep your Queen’s connections alive with a permanent Queen’s email address. As alumni, you can sign up for a permanent email address. 

For recent graduates (2013 and beyond) your student email automatically converts to a permanent email address. To keep your email service active, you must log into your account at least once per year. If you are only using your Queen's email account to forward mail to another address, then you will still need to log in to avoid loss of service.

For other alumni, you will need to reactivate your NetID to gain access to Alumni Email for Life. Instructions for reactivating your NETID

Once your NetID is activated, you can log into Office 365 at this link. If you have completed the setup process and have issues with the activation/authentication process, please email to have us manually activate your email address. 

Please contact the Alumni Office if you have any questions.

Tricolour Email Forwarding Service

We no longer offer the Tricolour Email Forwarding to new users, however, we will continue to support the service for current users for the foreseeable future. You may wish to switch to the email available for Queen's alumni. If you are using the forwarding service and would like to update your email address please email us. 

Safe Links Active on Emails

Do you have a email address? As part of Queen's ongoing security initiatives, the Microsoft Advanced Threat Protection Safe Links feature has been enabled on all email addresses as of June 8, 2017.  

Safe Links can help protect you from malicious hyperlinks in an email. This feature rewrites every URL link found in an email in order to redirect users through a Microsoft proxy server which checks at the time of click if the URL link is safe.
