Don’t miss the opportunity to stroll around the amazing Queen’s University campus.
One of the most prestigious Canadian universities, Queen’s University was established in 1841, in a Royal Charter issued by Queen Victoria.
Its founders modelled the new college on the universities of Edinburgh and Glasgow, and like them, Queen’s was given a governing structure built around a Board of Trustees, a Principal, and a Senate. In the university’s early years, all its faculty were Scottish-educated.
