Where to eat on Move-In Day

Move-In Day sees over 4,000 students moving in at once. So don’t forget to think about where and what you’ll be eating on September 4th. Some retail outlets will be open but we also recommend bringing snacks and water. Come prepared for lineups – it’s always nice to have something to munch on while you’re waiting, especially if you’re doing a lot of physical activity.

Alert: Attention International Students

International students are being targeted by an agency that is falsely calling students directly to notify them of issues with their immigration status and asking students to pay $1500 or more to resolve issues. Please be advised that this is a hoax and that a government agency would never ask you to wire money, or threaten deportation. Therefore, you should not make any payment and you can hang up on the caller. If you should receive such a call, please report the incident to the police. If you are concerned about your immigration status please drop by Queen’s University International Centre to talk to our International Student Advisor.
