Short-Term Temporary Options
Short-term temporary accommodations may be needed for your first few days in Kingston. Students who do not have their long-term housing pre-arranged and confirmed, will need time to search housing listings and make appointments to view various places. Depending on the time of the year, it may take anywhere between one day and a week to find long-term housing.
The summer arrival period in late August and early September gets very busy in Kingston; it is best to make your reservations in advance. Your options include:
- Queen’s University Summer Accommodations (last night for guests to stay: Saturday, August 24, 2019)
- Canada Homestay Network – short stays with local families
- Hotels and Motels near campus
- Kingston AirBnB
Some motels/hotels may offer discounted rates for students – please ask the provider about a student rate when making a reservation. It may be also a good idea to ask about their booking cancellation policy if your plans should change.
