In 2020, the University committed to installing and stocking free menstrual products on campus. A Queen's student club, Queen's Period, is working for menstrual equity within the Queens and Kingston communities.

The university has partnered with the Alma Mater Society to expand access to free menstrual products on campus. Pads and tampons are available in dispensers located in a number of high-traffic buildings to make menstrual products more physically accessible in the Queen’s community. 

To date, menstrual products have been made available as follows:

  • The university installed free product dispensers in the Queen’s Centre in 2020, followed by more in the libraries, and some residences.
  • Dispensers have also been installed by Queen’s Facilities in the Athletics and Recreation Centre, following recommendations from a recent AMS student survey about increasing access to products.
  • Housing and Ancillary Services worked with the Residence Society to add dispensers and dedicated disposal units in all residence buildings with foodservice locations: Leonard, Jean Royce, Ban Righ, and Victoria Halls, and Smith House.
  • Dispensers are also currently located in Goodes Hall, and the Queen’s Cancer Research Institute.
  • AMS Take1Leave1 baskets are currently in restrooms in the LaSalle and Rideau Buildings, the Queen’s Centre, and the Journal House.

The availability of free menstrual products on campus helps advance United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 3, Good Health and Wellbeing.
