The perfect place to study

Situated on the shores of Lake Ontario and centrally located between Toronto, Ottawa and Montreal in the world-famous Thousand Islands, Kingston combines small-town accessibility with big-city convenience for an experience that will make you feel right at home.

Founded in 1673, a one-time United Empire Loyalist stronghold and a key base of British operations during the War of 1812, Kingston served as the first capital of the United Canada's from 1841 to 1844. While museums, heritage artifacts and dozens of impeccably preserved limestone buildings serve as reminders of the city's illustrious past, Kingston really shines in the present day.

Ranked the 3rd best place to live in Canada by MoneySense Magazine, Kingston has a beautiful and historic downtown core that's home to a vibrant, eclectic collection of shops, restaurants and live entertainment venues.
