Custom Sustainable Event Planning

“Queens University is a great event venue for conferences. The campus itself is clean and classic in a picturesque location full of history and heritage. The spaces throughout are flexible to fit a variety of functions and formats. 

Their overall focus on customer satisfaction was fantastic. The Event Services team were available to us at all times and incredibly responsive and understanding of our requests. The accommodations onsite were very convenient and the staff were prepared, efficient, and friendly. The catering team on campus were able to accommodate all dietary restrictions, worked with us closely to create a menu, and were very organized. I would highly recommend Queens University as an event venue!"
