Overview

Queen’s is one of Canada’s oldest degree-granting universities and a contemporary hub of academic research in Kingston, Canada. It is also home of 2015 Nobel Prize winner, Dr. Arthur B. McDonald.


The university is among the top medical-doctoral universities in Canada. Its university- and faculty-based research centres provide dynamic, collaborative settings for scholars. Queen’s researchers lead the way in numerous fields, making notable advances recently in particle astrophysics, cancer research, art conservation, geotechnical engineering, biodiversity, and clean energy technology.

Welcoming and supporting students from all countries and backgrounds to a vibrant, safe, and supportive community is an important part of the Queen’s experience. Diverse perspectives and a wealth of experience enrich our campus and our community. A core part of our mission is to engage our students, staff, and faculty in international learning and research, both at home and abroad.

Through various partnerships, including its membership in the Matariki Network of Universities, Queen’s provides students and faculty with rich international learning opportunities and research collaboration.

Nestled in the heart Kingston in eastern Ontario, where Lake Ontario flows into the St. Lawrence River, Queen’s is conveniently located about 200 km from Canada's capital city of Ottawa, about 250 km from the centre of our provincial capital of Toronto, and about 300 km from Montréal, Québec. Kingston has been lauded as one of the Top 5 university towns in the world, Top 10 best small cities in North America for lifestyle, and Top 2 best cities in Canada to be a woman, and has been named the Smartest City in Canada – with the most PhDs per capita.
