The Winter Term of 2022 was a semester of new starts for many at Queen’s University.

On Feb. 28 students were welcomed back to campus with the resumption of in-person learning. 

With many COVID-19 measures in place, students, faculty and staff once again entered lecture halls and classrooms, offices and gathering spaces, bringing a sense of life back to the university.  

Lining up for coffee, entering the lab, or waiting for the lights at Union Street and University Avenue, it’s clear that it is good to be back.
