A Special Note on Queen’s Faculty Jackets

Since 1925, the Queen’s Jacket has been a symbol of tradition, more than just a fashion statement or a way to keep warm. Whether on campus, on the streets of Kingston, or around the world, the Queen’s Jackets communicate that you are part of the Queen’s community, regardless of your background, program and extracurricular interests. Learn more about the history of Queen’s Jackets here.

Each year has a crest, designed by a first-year student, which is affixed to each jacket. Stay tuned to our Twitter account to find out when designs are due (usually mid-September!)

In September, you’ll hear from your faculty about when Jacket Fittings will take place. Con-Ed, Computing, and PHEKIN are included in the ASUS jacket orders. While engineers can order their “Golden Party Armour” (GPA) through the Campus Equipment Outfitters.
