August is coming up fast, so it’s good to keep in mind that September (and Move-In Day) is just around the corner. But even though it’s summer, our teams at Queen’s have been busy planning out some helpful webinars to ease you into the process of coming to university. Wednesday, July 27th at 4pm, we’ll be hosting a webinar to help answer any questions you have about living in residence. What is it like to move away from home? What is it really like to live in a residence? What should I bring with me and what should I not? If you’ve asked yourself any of these questions and want to connect with us, register for our Wednesday, July 27th Webinar: Living In Residence, and have your questions answered!
If you’d like to attend any of the other informative webinars that Queen’s has to offer, we also have a webinar schedule.
Follow us at @queensures on Twitter or Queen’s University Residences on Facebook for any updates or to ask us questions during the coming weeks (and throughout the year, we’re here!)

Did you know it’s only 61 days until move-in day? With just over two months to go before you move in to residence at Queen’s, it might seem like a long way off. But it’s just the right time to do some ground work before August. At Next Steps, you’ll find out what you need to know about getting your OSAP application in, attending SOAR (Summer Orientation to Academics and Resources), selecting your courses, and a huge amount of information that is important for you to know.
Enjoy our video about orientation – get excited for September!
If you’re wondering what you should bring to res in September, look no further. We’ve created a checklist of items that have the OK. It won’t hurt to keep them in mind over the course of the summer – and don’t forget the alarm clock! Even though it’s definitely handy to use your phone to wake you up, it’s always good to plan for the times where you forget to charge it at night, or in the event it gets misplaced, and you need to be at class the next morning.
Don’t forget to follow us on Twitter and Facebook! Our pages get updated frequently throughout the week. We’re here to answer any questions that you might have regarding residences. Move-In Day will come quicker than you think – it’s already less than three months away. We’re here to help!
