Queen's is located in the city of Kingston, Ontario, Canada, half-way between Montreal and Toronto, two of Canada's largest cities. Kingston is situated on the shores of Lake Ontario, near the entrance to the St. Lawrence Seaway, Thousand Islands and the Rideau Canal.
The best way to get to know Queen’s is by coming to visit. Explore our historic buildings, attend cultural events, and spend some time in our distinguished museums, archives, and galleries.
We love sharing our campus and community!
Visitor and Information Centre
Run by the Alma Mater Society and staffed by students, the Visitor and Information Centre has campus maps on hand, as well as literature about Queen’s and Kingston, including Kingston bus schedules, and 1000 Islands Cruise schedules.
