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.

As with all construction projects, we expect that there will be some noise during daytime hours (7 a.m. – 7 p.m.), however we will be doing our best to minimize disruption and to keep you informed throughout the process.

We ask that you use caution around the works sites to protect yourself and others. Please follow directions on signage and stay out of closed areas.

We’ll be posting regular updates and building information on our website-but if you have questions or concerns, contact us at: res.news@queensu.ca.
