Off-Campus Student Living Guide

Building Community Together

As Queen's Students, you are part of the broader Kingston community. 

Whether you are living off-campus for the first time or back for another year, this guide is intended to provide support as you navigate neighbourhood relations, City of Kingston regulations, tenant rights, living with housemates, and much more.  

We are here to help as you connect, learn, and grow within the community.

What does Community mean to you?

"To me, community means having a space where I feel safe and comfortable and I’m able to both help and ask for help from my neighbours when needed.”

SCR Student Ambassador, 2022-2023

"Community is where I can build relationships, learn from others, and make a difference.”

SCR Student Ambassador, 2022-2023

“Community is a place where individuals can feel a sense of belonging and connection, where people come together to solve problems, celebrate accomplishments and create positive change."
