SOLUS is a Gaelic word that means "knowledge and light." It also stands for "Student On Line University System."

The SOLUS Student Centre is the primary means by which online services are provided to students. Whether you are new to Queen’s, or are a returning student, you will access SOLUS for a variety of things – from checking your fees, to selecting your classes, to viewing your class and exam schedules, to downloading forms for Enrolment Verification and Income Tax purposes.

As with any technology, the more you use a service the more comfortable you become with it.

We encourage you to take the time to navigate SOLUS on your own – click on the various links within the Student Centre and see where they lead.
