Campus Update

In the early hours of Friday, April 5, Queen's University experienced multiple instances of spray-painted graffiti on campus, which was racist and hateful in nature.

The university reminds everyone that it cannot speculate as to who may be responsible, and notes that Campus Security and Emergency Services is actively cooperating with the Kingston Police to investigate the crime.

“There is no place at Queen’s for vandalism like this, nor for the hateful and racist messaging contained in the graffiti,” says Teri Shearer, Deputy Provost (Academic Operations and Inclusion). “The defaced areas have been documented and the university is working to have the damage removed or cleaned immediately.”

Anyone with information on these incidents or suspects is asked to contact Campus Security and Emergency Services (613-533-6111) or Kingston Police (613-549-4660).

Persons who may be affected by these criminal acts and require support are encouraged to reach out to the support services available on campus or the multi-faith chaplain.
