Update for 2021-22

Our commitment is to ensure that we are able to provide residence spaces for as many incoming, undergraduate first-year students as we can, depending on the public health context in 2021.

At this time, we do not expect to be able to offer spaces to upper-year students for the 2021/2022 academic year and therefore we are not opening an upper-year student application process.

If you are interested in upper-year residence for 2021-22, please contact us at reshouse@queensu.ca and we will note your interest, and follow up with you in the summer of 2021, should circumstances related to the pandemic change.

We strongly encourage you to make a plan for off-campus housing for 2021-22.

 Please review the links listed below for additional information and resources.
