Queen's Women's Association

The Queen’s Women’s Association (QWA) is a member-supported organization originally established as the Faculty Women’s Club in 1939.

Currently located at 187A King Street West, QWA provides a meeting and networking place for women who hold or whose spouse/partner holds a position at Queen’s University, as well as for those who have held or whose spouse/partner has held a position at Queen’s in the past.

QWA offers its members opportunities to:

  • participate in social, educational and enriching events
  • join activities such as bridge, hiking, French conversation, and recreational reading, see the full list under ‘interest groups’
  • support the academic, social and cultural fabric at Queen’s

The QWA provides a means of social interaction for its members, works cooperatively with Queen’s University to foster a collegial atmosphere on campus, and supports women students at Queen’s by funding bursaries and awards.
