David C. Smith House is our Residence for Upper Year students.  It opened in September 2015 and is named in honour of former Principal Dr. David C. Smith, who served as Queen’s Principal from 1984 – 1994.

A nationally respected economist, Principal Smith began teaching at Queen’s in 1961. He served as head of the Department of Economics from 1968-1981 and was appointed Principal in 1984. During his two terms as Principal, Queen’s underwent numerous changes, including the founding of the Women’s Studies Department and the Bader International Study Centre, and the construction of numerous buildings,  including Stauffer Library and the Biosciences Complex.
