Queen's University



Queen's University is a community, 175 years of tradition, academic excellence, research, and beautiful waterfront campus made of limestone buildings and modern facilities. But more than anything Queen's is people. We are researchers, scholars, artists, professors and students with an ambitious spirit who want to develop ideas that can make a difference in the world. People who imagine together what the future could be and work together to realize it.

Queen's is one of Canada's oldest degree-granting institutions, and has influenced Canadian higher education since 1841 when it was established by Royal Charter of Queen Victoria. Located in Kingston, Ontario, Canada, it is a mid-sized university with several faculties and schools, as well as the Bader International Study Centre located in Herstmonceux, East Sussex, United Kingdom.
