About Chown

Located on the north side of Stuart Street, this four-storey limestone residence was completed in 1960 and named after May Chown (BA 1911), who was treasurer of the Ban Righ Board for many years.  Chown Hall is a mixed gender residence and features many interesting rooms and common spaces.


Note: Queen’s has 17 residence buildings – and they are all unique. Our oldest building – Ban Righ Hall, was built in 1925 – and our newest buildings – Brant and Smith -were built in 2015. That means each building is different in size, furnishings and layout – and that your room may not look at all like your neighbour’s room.

We’ve provided some photos and videos to give you an idea of our room types, but please know that your specific room may not look like the examples. Rooms vary quite a bit in size and furnishings. Some rooms have carpets, while others do not. Window sizes, closets and other features change from room to room.

We update buildings through a planned maintenance schedule, so the photos and videos on this website may not show recent improvements right away. Please keep this in mind when viewing our building pages.


Bedrooms:

  • Mixed gender environment with single, double and triple rooms on five floors, for just over 200 students
  • Bedrooms range in size from 10 x 13 to 12 x 13. Please note that bedrooms vary considerably in terms of size and furnishings
  • Beds require Twin-XL sized sheets

If you are interested in purchasing bed linens, pillows, bath packages and other personal items to be delivered directly to your residence room, please contact Campus Linens at: www.campuslinenscanada.com .
