Ellis Hall – Auditorium

History of Ellis Hall

Ellis Hall, completed in 1958, has long been the home of the Department of Civil Engineering. Additionally, the Queen’s Observatory is located on the roof.

Ellis Hall is named after Douglas Stewart Ellis (1885-1955), a Queen’s graduate who taught Civil Engineering between 1910 and 1955. He was also the Dean of Applied Science from 1943 to 1955.

Ellis Hall was constructed after WWII to help alleviate the extreme pressure on the Faculty of Engineering for more scientific courses at Queen’s.
