Trip Planner:   Canada  /  Ontario  /  Kingston  /  Queen's University

Queen's University, Kingston

4.6
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.

  • Not sure how it happened but I was invited to my 35th Queens Homecoming. What a treat and I am so glad my daughter and I attended. We met up with all sorts of past Queens friends, ate at some great re...  more »

  • Take the time to stroll the campus which is full of both modern and historical buildings. It is a lovely area which is somewhat different to its dark past. A lovely place to while away an hour Orr two...  more »

  • 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!

Where to stay in Kingston

The most desirable accommodations in Kingston line the waterfront in the city's downtown region, offering views over the wide St. Lawrence River. If you want to immerse yourself in the city's hippest scene, look slightly west to the area around Queen's University, where you'll also enjoy easy access to some of Kingston's most pleasant parks. Those hoping to take some road trips out of the city should consider staying at one of the many motels and guesthouses along Princess Street--there, you're perfectly placed to hit the road and explore the region.
