Where to Stay

Homestay is recommended while you are studying at QSoE, and it offers many benefits:

  • A safe and welcoming home
  • All meals are included
  • The support of a Canadian family
  • Immersion in Canadian culture
  • Opportunities to practice your conversation skills every day
  • Friendships in the community that can last a lifetime!

"Welcoming students into my home for over ten years was the best experience. Not only were they eager to learn about my family and my traditions, but they brought all their culture and experiences with them as well. A wonderful opportunity to grow and share." - Kingston Homestay host Tracy Lott


Queen’s University offers some residence options though availability is very limited.  Visit the Residences page for more information.
