The university campus and the whole area around it, which is basically downtown Kingston, give you a great opportunity to see all kinds of gorgeous old buildings. There is so much history here, for sure. On a nice day it is a great place to...More

Very old place, looks like a highschool from the 70s. Grad bar on campus has awful wine. Try to avoid being here if possible.

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.

Queen's University is huge! It's a lovely university. Although some of their edifices are modern, they still follow the protocol of the former buildings. Truly, it looked like it was built several centuries ago and at the same time the buildings look new! Most of...More

We took a campus tour then walked around on our own. The campus is probably one of the nicest in Canada. The buildings are historic limestone. Even the modern construction blends in well. It is not a large campus so most of it can be...More
