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 for SOAR 2020 in comfortable and affordable rooms located in Queen's Residence.  Summer accommodations in David C Smith House and Brant House are offering SOAR exclusive offers for incoming students and their guests.
Use code SOAR for $10 off per night of your stay.
