Queen’s is building, and there are ongoing campus and city construction, renovation and maintenance projects occurring at or adjacent to a number of residences on main campus.  Prudent construction practices are followed, but there will be noise, dust and temporary interruption of some services on main campus throughout the school year, including during mid-terms and exams.
