Harkness Hall, Student room #
Victoria Hall Front Desk
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.
Built in 1969, Harkness Hall is named in honour of R.D. Harkness, a chair of Queen’s Board of Trustees in the 1960s. It is located on Earl Street, near the intersection with Alfred Street, one block north of main campus in a residential area near the Smith School of Business and Joseph S. Stauffer Library.
Harkness Hall is a 3-storey mixed gender building that houses only first-year students. It has room for about 100 students in mostly single rooms.
