Help Name the Albert Street Residence

Consultation is underway to select a permanent name for the new Albert Street Residence.  The name will reflect the nature and purpose of the building as a residence, using a word in an Indigenous language. 

Themes regarding the type of name sought have been identified as:

  • Community
  • Belonging
  • Welcoming / Comfort
  • Unity
  • Home
  • Physical Space

The name will build on the previous themes identified, with additional a name consideration being:

  • Easy to learn
  • Appropriate ‘short forms’
  • Potential for 2-3 languages being reflected through multiple names

We invite the Queen’s campus community to share input until December 23, 2022, via email to: edhouse@queensu.ca. Indigenous identifying students can drop by the Indigenous lunchtime Social Feast at Four Directions Indigenous Student Centre (December 1, 11-1pm), to give input in person.
