Queen's is one of Canada's leading universities, with an international reputation for scholarship, research, social purpose, and spirit. Consistently highly-ranked, Queen's is known for its incomparable 24-hour learning environment. Great teaching, great students, community and tradition - these are the hallmarks of the Queen's experience.
The University was established by Royal Charter of Queen Victoria in 1841 - twenty-six years before Canadian confederation. Classes were first held in 1842. The earliest degree-granting institution in the united Province of Canada, and the first to establish a student government, Queen's has reflected and helped shape Canadian values and policies, educating many of the country's most notable political and cultural figures.
Queen's University is located in Kingston, Ontario, Canada, a quintessential university community big enough to provide all the conveniences of modern life, but small enough for students, staff and faculty to feel instantly comfortable and at home. For more than a century-and-a-half, the stories of Queen's and Kingston have been inextricably entwined.
The city of Kingston
Nestled on the northeast shore of Lake Ontario, at the mouth of the St. Lawrence River, historic Kingston is a thriving community of 141,000 residents, boasting a superb quality of life due to its big-city amenities, waterfront location and rich natural landscape.
More than anything, Kingston is a university town, home to 25,000 students studying at three post secondary institutions, including Queen's. Within a ten-minute walk from campus, students can access all that our eclectic downtown core has to offer: shops, restaurants and cultural resources, waterfront pathways and the 19th century buildings and homes that signify Canada's "Limestone City".
Located midway between Toronto and Montreal, within two hours drive of Ottawa, and 40 minutes of the U.S. border, Kingston is easily accessible by air, bus or train.
