Queen's is not only one of the top ranking higher learning institutions in Canada, but also one of the most beautiful universities in the country. It’s located just steps away from Lake Ontario that is picturesque all year-around. Stone-front heritage buildings sitting proudly alongside their glass-facade modern facilities connected by the tree-lined streets on the campus, welcome all visitors old and new. If you’re en-route Thousand Island, Queen’s should be another worth-while stop.

Queen's University is an amazing place. My daughter is completing her second year at Queen's and has never been happier. She loves the community and campus life. Very supportive and congenial atmosphere. Students are quite keen and involved in numerous actives. Downtown Kingston is only a short walk from campus. Most convenient. We are from Toronto and often visit Kingston and the surrounding area in the summer. Quite beautiful.

The Agnes Etherington Art Gallery is a fabulous find and a real gem - not to be missed! Gorgeous old greystone buildings all around!

great campus, central city location, historic buildings, well kept grounds, a little congested with traffic, but it depends on the time of year

Queens university is an exceptional and progressive educational institution on a beautiful campus with wonderfully restored and maintained buildings. The architectural controls on the new buildings also reflect the historic nature of the surrounding campus.
