Queen's Supports and Services

Deciding to go back to school can be a challenging process. At the Ban Righ Centre, we can advise you about coming back to school, and share information about resources that might be available for you if you decide to come to Queen's.

Some of Queen's many other support services include:

Programs and Applying

The Office of the University Registrar is a great place to start to learn about how to apply to your program(s) of choice. The Undergraduate Admissions and School of Graduate Studies and Postdoctoral Affairs websites offer and overview of academic program information.

Academic Support

From faculty advisors and TA's to peer support and tutoring, Queen's offers many Academic Support resources to support students across all the stages of their academic career. Schedule an appointment with Career Services to discuss your future goals and options. Connect with Student Academic Success Services (SASS) to improve your writing and your skills for managing time, studying for exams, and reading more efficiently.


Accessibility Services facilitates academic accommodations and other disability support, including referrals to on- and off-campus resources.

The online campus map and the downloadable accessible campus map (PDF, 20.1 MB) provide details on accessible entries and elevators in campus buildings.

The Accessibility Hub provides for all kinds of accessibility-related resources and guides. Follow @AccessHubQU for regular updates and notices.

Financial Assistance

Through Student Awards, you can apply for awards and bursaries, learn about the Work Study program, and find internal/external funding opportunities. If you have lived in Ontario for a year before starting school, you could qualify for the Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP). Ask for an estimate of your OSAP funding and register for the school year.

Students with Children

Many of the mature women students involved in the Ban Righ Centre have children or other family responsibilities. Find resources for mature students and families.



International Students

Queen's University International Centre (QUIC) promotes an internationally-informed and cross-culturally sensitive learning environment, and has dedicated support services for international students.

Indigenous Students

Four Directions Indigenous Student Centre is a home away from home for Indigenous students and a site of information and support for the broader Queen's community.

Gender and Sexual Diversity

Along with the Ban Righ Centre, there are many other resources, spaces and organizations that support LGBTQ+ students.
