In January 2015, Queen’s University will re-open following the Winter break on the first day of classes, January 5.  As a result, most university services will not be available until that time.  QUIC will be opening early to assist students starting their studies at Queen’s in January.

Open with extended hours January 3 and 4, 2015  

1:00 to 7:00 pm.

Staffed by students throughout the weekend, the Centre is available during these times as a place to relax, meet new friends, access e-mail, and watch movies in the Centre’s Lounge. You are encouraged to use our kitchen to prepare evening meals together.

All activities are free with the exception of the trip to the conservation area.
