Accessing co-working space

If you’re searching for Queen’s and Kingston’s entrepreneurship community, look no further than the Rose Innovation Hub.

Home to the Dunin-Deshpande Queen’s Innovation Centre (DDQIC) and its programming, this facility offers the perfect space for meetings, workshops and co-working. Whether you are curious about entrepreneurship, looking to develop your skills or already have your own company, the Rose Innovation Hub is a place to work, explore, network, design, and collaborate. We welcome Kingston community members and local post-secondary students from any school, faculty, or level of study.

First things first, you will need fob access to the space. If you don't already have a key fob, these can be purchased at the Campus Bookstore for around $12. To get your fob programmed for access please contact Program Manager, Joanna Tinus, at
