Undergraduate Students

  • Winter Semester.


    We expect that students returning at any time to Kingston from outside the KFL&A, Hastings and Prince Edward Counties, and Leeds, Grenville, and Lanark region, or who have had visitors from outside the region, will self-isolate for 14 days and should consider voluntary, asymptomatic testing for COVID-19.

    • January 11: Remote classes begin.
    • January 25: Earliest date that on-campus labs for select, authorized courses will start. Contact your program office for details.
    • February 15 - 19: Reading Week - Students leaving the KFL&A, Hastings and Prince Edward Counties, and Leeds, Grenville, and Lanark region, or who have had visitors from outside the region, are expected to self-isolate for 14 days and should consider voluntary, asymptomatic testing for COVID-19.

  • Some on-campus labs may resume in the Winter 2021 term.

    All of our Winter 2021 programming will be available online. Also, a select number of Undergraduate Labs for upper-year students may be authorized to take place on-campus and if so, you will be advised by your department as to whether you will attend these labs in-person or on-line. The earliest date that these sessions may begin is January 25. If you attend in-person, you will be assigned a “cohort” and will receive guidance from your department on the protocols and training required to attend the labs.

    A “cohort” is a group of 3-6 students in the same household, same course, or same social bubble who will be isolated in the lab from other cohorts and who will be asked to limit contact outside of that cohort.

  • Screening and logging via the SeQure app will be required for undergraduate students visiting campus.

    “Screening” is a quick process that involves answering COVID-related questions and providing a contact phone number for contact tracing purposes. Data collected is confidential and is held for 30 days.

    Undergraduate students who are authorized to take on-campus labs or who book study space in Mitchell Hall (see below) will be required to self screen before every entry to Queen's buildings. Download the SeQure app on your mobile phone. You will need to display your green authorization status at the door.

  • Study space in Mitchell Hall will re-open on February 22.

    Engineering is offering Mitchell Hall 215/225/235 as reservation only study space for Engineering undergraduates. Hours are M-Sa, 12:30-9:30. Reservations are made through Dibs.
