?Queen's & Kingston

[Downtown restaurants and retail outlets][Downtown restaurants]

Queen’s is an integral part of the Kingston community, with the campus nestled in the core of the city, only a 10-minute walk to downtown. Kingston becomes a part of the Queen’s experience whether you are faculty, student, or staff.

From tutoring an elementary or high school student down the street, volunteering or working for one of the many shops and businesses downtown, or becoming friends with a neighbour (who also could be a professor or staff member!), being a part of the Queen’s community and the Kingston community are intimately intertwined.

By fourth year of undergraduate study:

  • 60% of students have participated in community service or volunteer activity
  • 50% have tutored other students on campus and in the Kingston community
  • 38% have completed a practicum, internship, field experience, co-op, or clinical assignment in and around the city
  • 33% have participated in community-based projects

Queen’s and its community of faculty, staff, and students contribute to the economic vibrancy of the city. Local impact of Queen’s amounts to $1.5 billion per year in economic activity including:

  • $338 million in direct student spending
  • $288 million in direct after-tax staff and faculty spending
  • $9 million in direct spending by visitors to Queen’s
  • $162 million in direct University spending on local goods and services
  • $61 million in additional economic activity associated with the School of Medicine and the Southeastern Ontario Academic Medical Association (SEAMO)
