Located between Toronto, Montreal, Ottawa, and New York State, Kingston is an easy destination to get to. Kingston is very close to the New York State boarder and only about an hour drive from the U.S. city of Watertown and a two hour drive from Syracuse. You have multiple great options when it comes to transport. Once you’re in Kingston, Queen’s campus is within a 10-15 minute taxi or Uber ride from the Via Rail Station, the Coach station and the Kingston Airport.
