FYNIRS Orientation

First Year Not In Residence Students Orientation! 

FYNIR Students on Zoom

We are very excited to meet you, provide you with a fantastic Orientation experience, and introduce you to a new community of Queen's students. First Year Not In Residence Students, affectionately known as FYNIRS, aims to create a very welcoming and inclusive environment for first-year students living off-campus in Kingston and the surrounding areas. FYNIRS hopes to help ease your transition into the Queen's community and is active year-round to provide you with ongoing support during your first year.

The FYNIRS community provides students with all of the necessary information regarding opportunities, services, and resources available at Queen’s. FYNIRS is an excellent way for students to meet new first-year students living off-campus and other upper-year students in the FYNIRS community.

Since the FYNIRS community is active throughout the year, you will be able to connect with peers beyond the Orientation period, too! 


Registration is now open until August 19th for FYNIRS Orientation and school year programming: FYNIRS Registration
