Parking Map


During SOAR, attendees can park for free in the Tindall campus parking lot. SOAR staff members will be on hand (look for the tricolour umbrellas!) to distribute parking passes, which MUST be displayed on your dashboard to avoid getting a parking ticket. Then there is a beautiful ten minute walk through campus towards the Biosciences Complex!


Stay on campus during your SOAR 2019 visit, and experience a little bit of Queen's life! Our premium accommodation option, at a price of $99* per night for SOAR attendees, is a great deal. These newly built 2-bedroom units include a private washroom, extra-long double bed in each bedroom, flat screen TV, mini-fridge, free wi-fi, and more!

Please book your on campus accommodations online, and use the promo code: SOAR1 to get the special Sunday to Thursday $99 rate, and Friday & Saturday $109 .  You are also able to contact the summer accommodations office at 613-533-2223 ext. 0 during business hours, Monday-Friday, and quote the promo code: SOAR1 to receive your $10 discount per night on accommodations.
