Queen's University Archives will return to walk-in reading room operations on September 13, 2021. Please check the hours, as the Reading Room may be reserved for class visits.  

Queen’s University requires all faculty, staff, students, and visitors to campus to be fully vaccinated before coming to campus.  All visitors should be prepared to show proof of vaccination, if requested.  Masks must be worn in the Archives at all times. 

Everyone coming to campus should conduct a daily self-assessment before attending university property, such as the Queen's SeQure App self-assessment or the Ontario government self-assessment tool.

Please contact us via email at archives@queensu.ca if you have questions about your visit.

Further updates on health and safety on campus please check the Queen's Safe return to campus page.
