Queen's University, Kingston

#4 of 9 in Sightseeing in Kingston
Tourist Spot Educational Site
Take a pleasant stroll around campus at Queen's University, one of Canada's top learning institutions. Guided tours bring your visit alive with stories and information, including the fact that the university actually predates the founding of Canada by 26 years. Pay special attention to the architecture here: the university has retained its limestone structures built during its initial founding. If you get the opportunity, eat at the main dining hall--an affordable all-you-can-eat buffet with excellent food. Using our international travel planner, Kingston attractions like Queen's University can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • My grandkids went here it was an honor for my son to go to Canada were my family came from.
  • The grading system is so unfair. I was given a 2.6 CGPA when I clearly could've earned myself a 3.6CGPA at least. I worked hard yet was never compensated appropriately. It's almost as if the school wish to not have their students graduate on time and/or pursue a higher education
  • People that come to Queen's show up from other towns and cities and refer to the people of kingston as townies like they're above us or something. Meeting students that go to queens makes me fear for our future.
  • I loved studying at Queen's, hell of beautiful memories and I really think that time is worth something.
  • Most of my family, when given umpteen choices, chose Queen's University. These statistics speak for themselves!
