“The purchase of the property positions Queen’s to adapt and respond to changes in the University environment by alleviating pressures, such as parking, on main campus and providing options for the University with respect to locating both academic and administrative units at this optimal location,” said Donna Janiec, VP (Finance and Administration).

St. Mary’s of the Lakes is adjacent to the Isabel Bader Centre for the Performing Arts, is in close proximity to the Donald Gordon Centre, and bridges main and west campus.

The university is exploring options for relocation of main campus units to the property, and will make use of the available parking.
