The Queen's University International Centre (QUIC) provides welcome and orientation services whenever a student, scholar or staff member arrives. Packages of information about our programs and services as well as those provided by other parts of Queen's University are included.
September 2012 Starts
The Queen's University International Centre (QUIC) offers welcome activities as well as orientation sessions for newly-arriving undergraduate and graduate degree-seeking students as well as students studying at Queen's as part of a formal exchange agreement.
QUIC provided extended hours to help ensure a safe and comfortable arrival in Kingston.
Students should also check with their academic faculty and the Residence Admission office (if applicable) regarding other orientation activities and sessions. General information is also available on the Queen's Orientation website.
January 2013 Starts
While not as extensive as the September Welcome and Orientation schedule, the January schedule provides useful preparation for new students. The Queen's University International Centre also offers extended hours during this period. This is meant to provide a safe, comfortable environment to meet other students and settle in upon your arrival at Queen's.
Starting at any other time
Queen's University International Centre staff and student resource people are available to provide information about banking, housing, orientation to campus and the wider community. New international students are encouraged to pick-up an information package about QUIC, its services and opportunities as well as services provided by other groups to all members of the Queen's Community. Whenever you come to the Centre you will find tea and coffee, local and national newspapers, computers (and wireless internet access), friendly conversation, and a place to meet new people.
