Queen's University was established on October 16, 1841 in a Royal Charter issued by Queen Victoria. The document was granted after years of effort by the Presbyterians of Upper Canada to found a college for the education of ministers in the growing colony, and to instruct youth in the "various branches in Science and Literature."
Queen’s is a full-spectrum, research-intensive university that conducts leading-edge research in a variety of areas, including:
Career Services is here to help undergraduate students, graduate students and recent alumni from all disciplines. We offer a comprehensive range of accessible services to support and empower you in making informed decisions about your career, further education and employment next steps.

QUIC also provides valuable resources for students who wish to deepen their international engagement by participating in campus activities that expose them to a global perspective.
Queen's University Library is committed to an inclusive community with accessible goods, services, and facilities that respect the dignity and independence of persons with disabilities. The Library offers services, technology and accessible spaces for students, faculty and staff with disabilities.
Queen's Student Wellness Services (formerly "Health, Counselling, and Disability Services" or "HCDS") supports the personal, academic, and social development of students at Queen's University by providing a range of programs and services. Our mission is to provide a welcoming, confidential, and integrated service that is responsive to the needs of students.
Queen's students don't limit their learning to the classroom. They join clubs, run for student government, try out for sports teams, and test their skills in academic competitions. The Student Experience at Queen's is about exploring all your capabilities — academic and otherwise — while learning the values of teamwork, and extending this knowledge to topics and causes that interest you beyond your major.
