New Residence (Albert Street)

Queen’s is building a new 334 bed student residence building on main campus that will target Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold certification.

The new residence building will be located on Albert Street on the Northside of campus. The site(s) are currently occupied by five (5) university-owned houses (142-154 Albert Street). Two of these charming houses at 142 Albert and 144 Albert Street will be either partially or fully integrated into the new building in an effort to retain some of the look and feel of the area.
