  • What is SOLUS?

    On March 9th, 2011, Queen's University changed the way that we deliver online services to students and alumni - the SOLUS Student Center.


    SOLUS is a Gaelic word that means "knowledge and light". It also stands for "Student On Line University System."


    Because many new students will not be familiar with the new system, we have prepared an easy to use tutorial that will explain how to access SOLUS, and how to order services from it.

  • Before you begin
    Your NetID


    In order to login to the SOLUS Student Center, you will be asked to provide your NetID and password.


    Some alumni may not remember their NetID, while others may never have been issued one while they were students.


    The NetID is an issued combination of letters and numbers which is unique to each student. Think of it as your individual passkey to unlocking online services from Queen's.


    If you don't have a NetID, you can activate one by going to


    This utility will require two things - one of which is your Student ID Number. If you do not remember your Student ID Number, you can contact the Office of the University Registrar at 613.533.2040 , and our staff will be able to assist you.


    If you have your NetID, and don't remember your password, you can do either of the following:

    • If you created your Challenge Questions and supplied an Alternate Email address, you can use the  Self Service Password Reset Tool
    • If you did not create your Challenge Questions and did not supply an Alternate Email address, you will have to contact the IT Support Centre at 613.533.6666  or complete the Online Help Form



    Pop-Ups Welcome


    If you are planning on printing forms from the SOLUS Student Center, please ensure that your web browser (Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Safari, Google Chrome) is set to allow pop-up windows.


    SOLUS generates form requests by producing them in an Adobe pdf format in a new browser window. If your browser is set to block pop-ups, then your forms will not appear on your computer.


    In order to help users be able to allow pop-ups, an instruction sheet has been produced that lists the steps involved. The document lists the steps for each of the web browser formats mentioned above, for both the Mac and PC computing environments:

    The MyQueens Portal  is the access point that leads to many online services, including the SOLUS Student Center


    A link to the MyQueensU Portal can be found on the Queen's University homepage.


    The Portal can also be accessed by going to











    The Portal sign-on page will require you to use your NetID and password.


    If you do not remember your NetID and password, or do not yet have a NetID, please review the information in the 'Before you begin' section of this page.











    The MyQueen's Portal consists of three tabs - Home, Palette, and My Library.


    Access to the SOLUS Student Center is found in the body of the Palette tab.


    Please note that if a link to SOLUS does not appear here, you can locate it by the following steps:

    2. Click on the Options link located in the top right hand corner of the screen (grey area);

    3. From the choices, select "Add Application"

    5. A link to the SOLUS Student Center will now appear in the body of the page under the Home tab now and every time you login to the Portal.


    ** Please note: If you are currently, or have been, a staff member at Queen's, the link will read 'Student / HR Self Serve (PRD)'. This will still lead you to the SOLUS Student Center **







    A pop-up box will appear, asking whether you wish to navigate away from the page - click 'Yes'.


    You will then be taken to a new page that offers a menu selection of Self-Service.
