Looking for a place to live?

To find a place that works for them, many students use local advertisements, search engines, Facebook and other social media tools.

Queen’s University International Centre (QUIC)’s Housing Support offers information to new international members of Queen’s community regarding available resources to search for off-campus housing, clarity around housing terms, and what to be aware of before contracting to rent a particular property. 

If you don’t have housing pre-arranged, please note that it can take a few days to find housing after your arrival to Kingston. Incoming individuals should make a reservation to book a temporary room in advance. Important: The University will close for a winter holiday on Friday, December 21, 2018 at 4:30pm, and will re-open on Wednesday, January 2, 2019 at 8:30am. We generally do not recommend arriving on campus between December 22 and January 1,  as the only service in operation will be Campus Security and Emergency Services.

QUIC offers extended hours of operation to ease student arrivals:

Wed. Jan. 2 – Fri. Jan. 4:   8:30 am – 7:30 pm.

Sat. Jan. 5 – Sun. Jan. 6:   1:00 pm – 7:30 pm.

Temporary and Short Stay Options – for first few nights upon your arrival to Kingston.
