Please note: 

  • Despite the name, only undergraduates will be housed in Graduate Residence.
  • Construction Is ongoing for the new Innovation and Wellness Centre at the corner of Division and Union Street, located next to Graduate Residence. Construction projects, whether on campus or in the city, will always result in some noise and disruption. Our goal is to minimize the impact where possible, while supporting support Queen’s commitment to staying on schedule to open the new Centre, which will be bringing together experiential learning spaces and mental health and wellness services to the heart of main campus.
