Residence Life Services

Residence Education

Queen’s Residence Life believes in providing an environment where students can feel a sense of belonging, have diverse opportunities to build resiliency and where they can access ongoing support toward achieving academic success.
Our hope is that students will feel safe, comfortable and supported in their home away from home. The Residence Dons who are upper years living on each floor, support students through their transition to university. Feelings of connectedness and belonging are individual to each student and Dons are there to help navigate all of the opportunities to be involved in residence and in the larger campus community.
Living in residence encourages active participation in community – in residence, locally and globally. We encourage our residents to be respectful and civically engaged as they grow and personally develop as a member of the Queen’s residence community.

Residence Conduct

Guiding Principles for Residence Community Living

Residence Life creates a community environment where our students can feel a sense of belonging, build resilience, and be academically successful. We encourage the personal development of our community members by holding individuals accountable for violations of the residence behavioural expectations.

Residence Community Standards, as a part of the overall residence experience, are designed to:

  • Create connection and belonging within a safe and respectful residence community.
  • Challenge residents to think critically, accept responsibility for their actions, and learn and grow from their experiences.
  • Emphasize the rights, responsibilities, dignity, and academic pursuits of all residents.
