New Residence Construction
Queen’s Housing & Hospitality is excited to announce construction of two new residences on campus–one located on Leonard Field and the other at the corner of Albert and Stuart streets.

We’ll be posting regular updates and building information on our website-but if you have questions or concerns, contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
