Queens Enrollment rising

2014 May 30

Queen's University plans to add more than 2,000 full-time students to its direct and second-entry undergraduate programs will have a major impact on local housing, officials say.

Increased undergraduate enrolment at Queen's University would bring the total headcount from 16,526 in fall 2013 to 18,368 in fall 2016.

The university is already facing a housing crunch thanks to previous increases in enrolment. Two new residences are being built, but aren't slated for completion until 2015, and the majority of upper-year students live off-campus in the University District and Williamsville.
