Queen's University Residences focuses on a student-centred approach to curriculum. The curriculum, bounded by theory in practice, ensures that every first-year student in residence has the opportunity to become involved in programming related to four broad areas within the curriculum - Academic, Health/Wellness, Social and the Greater Community (city/world view). Dons/RAs, peer educators and facilitators deliver programs related to the transitional issues faced by first-year residents, with anticipated outcomes of attitude, skill, knowledge and experience. Program developers review the specific needs and develop programs that conform to these unique requirements.
