Resources to support your first-year student

Parents and Supporters

Congratulations on your student’s admission to Queen’s University! 

We understand the important role you’ve played as a parent or supporter in preparing your student to attend university, and we want to work with you to continue to support them on this new adventure. That’s why we have First-Year Foundation – programming that starts this summer and gives your student online and in-person opportunities to build their community, support their transition, and find their path to success for their first year.

As parents and supporters, we also have resources specific for you integrated throughout First-Year Foundation, including a webinar designed specifically for you!
