Study Spots

Studies in October

When you have to juggle new relationships, a new living arrangement, and school (sometimes a job as well!) during your first year, it can be difficult to get a hold on your studies and feel as though exams are a long way off. That may be the case, but it’s always best to start studying early so you can comfortably work through your exams, and minimize your stress around the middle and the end of the semester. Plus, forming good habits early on in your university career will help you in the long run – you’ll be able to see what works and what doesn’t for your studies in the future.

Here are a number of study spaces at Queen’s, as well as the link for booking rooms in our libraries, a breakdown of the seating at each library (so you can get an idea of how many seats there are for you to choose from) and learning how to prep yourself effectively for your exams. Good luck!

Need help dealing with stress?

It’s amazing how fast the summer comes and goes. We hope you enjoyed orientation week – because the school year has finally started! There are few things more exciting than studying something new and moving toward a career. But it can also be very stressful, especially in the first year of school, to get used to life away from home or make important decisions about your future.

If you know you have difficulties with your mood, your anxiety, or self-care, try consulting Student Wellness Services’ Self-Help Workbooks – if you need to schedule an appointment with a counsellor, make it happen.

Campus Resources

September is a big period of transition for first years. We have resources at Queen’s that will help you through it should you need. There is a vast array of resources on campus – whether your concerns are related to campus securitygetting walked home at night, or sexual violence and intimate partner violence, there are resources to suit your needs. We also offer career services, health promotions and academic support services. Take care of yourself – don’t be afraid to talk to someone if you need help.
