The Integrated Learning Centre within Beamish-Munro Hall is ‘home base’ for first-year engineering students. Built to support first-year, problem-based learning initiatives, we are a ‘live’ building, where the structure itself is monitored and used as a lab. Building tours will start at 10 am. If you would like to go on a tour, please visit the Tour Desk in the Atrium of Beamish-Munro Hall. Tours are approximately 40 minutes in lengthand will include a stopover in Mitchell Hall to see the new learning spaces for Engineering Students. The final building tour will begin at 3:15 pm.

10 am–1 pm, Design Teams
Please feel free to visit our Design Team displays, hosted by various student-run Engineering Society design teams. The teams are located throughout Beamish-Munro first floor.

2–4 pm, Kingston Trolley Tours
Interested in seeing the beautiful city that surrounds our Queen’s campus? Hop on the free 30-minute trolley tour! Experience some of Kingston’s most historic locations, including Fort Henry and City Hall. The trolley will pick up at Beamish-Munro Hall and drop off passengers at McLaughlin Hall. The trolley also drops off close to many of our engineering buildings that you can tour after the trolley ride! Please visit the Trolley Tours desk in Beamish-Munro Atrium to receive a wristband. Limited seats are available.
