Current Projects

Richardson Stadium Pavilion

Richardson Stadium will soon be undergoing its next phase of redevelopment. This exciting project will see the creation of a Pavilion at the North end of the stadium to fully enclose the field, allowing access to the east and west stands and stadium attendees to circumnavigate the full stadium at the concourse level.

When completed, the stadium (with Pavilion) will provide increased event hosting capabilities for local, provincial and national events enhancing the visibility of Queen’s and contributing to the broader community.

Duncan McArthur Hall

The redevelopment and expansion of the Duncan McArthur Hall (DMH) ‘A’ wing, will see a substantial addition to the building, and provide increased classroom, research, study, administration, and social spaces for both the Faculty of Education and elements of the Faculty of Heath Sciences.

By optimizing the development potential of the building site (as contemplated in the Queen's Campus Master Plan), Queen’s is able to address a good portion of the expansion needs of two Faculties, while also reinforcing the profile and importance of the West Campus as a part of the Queen’s community.
