A Community Campus Environment
The City of Kingston is located in eastern Ontario, where Lake Ontario flows into the St. Lawrence River, about 200 km from Canada's capital city of Ottawa, about 250 km from the centre of our provincial capital of Toronto, and about 300 km from Montréal, Québec.
Queen's is a residential university with most students hailing from outside of Kingston. year after year, more than 90% of incoming first year students come to Queen's from other areas of Ontario, Canada, and the world.
Queen's 17 residences, home to more than 4,500 graduate and undergraduate students, are more than just a place to stay while attending university. Here, you’ll meet incredible people from around the world – students with diverse backgrounds, experiences, perspectives, values and interests. You’ll also be invited to participate in a variety of social activities, cultural events and educational programs.
Most residences on main campus are within a 10-minute walk to classes, libraries, the Athletics & Recreation Centre (ARC), and our many dining facilities.
In fact, most student housing, Queen's-owned or otherwise, is within a 20-minute walk to campus. Whether you choose to live on campus in residence or off campus in the University District and beyond,
