Frequently Asked Questions


What is the goal of having space at ONRamp?

Queen's will use ONRamp to showcase startups and researchers, to host pitches, networking events, and consultations with Toronto-based stakeholders, including alumni, government and industry partners, and VCs. Entrepreneurs, startups, and community partners will also be invited to use the ONRamp facilities as a landing pad for meetings in downtown Toronto with potential investors, customers and suppliers, and government officials.


Where is the space?

ONRamp is located at 100 College Street in Toronto, Ontario.


What do I need to do if I would like to use the space?

To use the space, please contact Amanda Gilbert (, Communications Coordinator at Queen’s University. You will be provided a link to the ONRamp room booking system at which time you can set up an account through which you can book space. Users will be asked when and for what purpose they are using the space.


Who can use the space?  Is there a cost to me?

Entrepreneurs and startups working with Queen’s University and partners in the Kingston Innovation Ecosystem are able to access and use the space at no cost for space usage. 


Can other Queen’s community members use the space?  

In addition to entrepreneurs, startups and partners that are working with Queen’s, researchers, contributors to Queen’s Innovation Ecosystem, and colleagues from the various VP Portfolios are welcome to use the space.


When can we use the space?

The first floor space which includes meeting rooms and hot desk space is available to reserve between 9 am and 5 pm Monday to Friday. 


What is "hot desk space"?

A desk allocated to a worker on an as-needed basis, rather than belonging to a particular worker.


Is it available right away?

The space is available immediately. The partnership started in January and goes until December 2019.
