Welcome to Four Directions Aboriginal Student Centre

  • Welcome to your home away from home. Four Directions

    Located in a cozy house on Barrie Street on the edge of the Queen’s campus, the Four Directions Aboriginal Student Centre (FDASC) is the hub of the Queen’s Aboriginal community. We are committed to enhancing the development and well-being of this community, and to making the Queen’s experience a welcoming, positive one for all Indigenous students.

  • Working with Advancement and Four Directions, Chancellor Jim Leech has established a bursary for Indigenous students. Up to $15,000 is “awarded annually on the basis of demonstrated financial need to Aboriginal students in any year of any faculty or school at Queen’s University.” Recipients may be full- or part-time students.

    Applications can be made via SOLUS to the Office of the University Registrar, Student Awards by Oct. 31, 2017. Please visit queensu.ca/studentawards for information on Student Awards at Queen’s.

  • Four Directions Aboriginal Centre 

Four Directions Aboriginal Centre strives to be a home away from home for Indigenous students and a site of information and support for the broader Queen's community. It is a hub of activity and we welcome and encourage everyone to drop in and learn about the supports and services available.

Queen's University is situated on traditional Anishinaabe and Haudenosaunee Territory.

If you would like a copy of the poster that acknowledges the traditional territory, please feel free to download and print.
