Queen’s Homecoming 2019 will take place Oct. 18-20.

The university will be welcoming alumni from classes ending in 4 or 9, as well as all Queen’s Tricolour Guard who are celebrating 50 or more years since their graduation (Class of 1969).

Students graduating in 2019 are also invited to celebrate their first Homecoming as alumni and mark the occasion of their “Reunion-Zero.”

Homecoming weekend will feature a wide selection of events, including a football game against the York Lions at Richardson Stadium on Saturday, Oct. 19 at 1 pm.

The university is working closely with alumni, students, staff, faculty and city partners to confirm programming and event details.

“Homecoming is a special event for the university as it brings together past and present students, friends, and supporters to celebrate Queen’s and what it means to be part of such a great community,” says Principal Daniel Woolf. “To help prepare for Homecoming’s many events we continue to collaborate closely with our community partners to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience for everyone.”
