City of Kingston
Kingston is a relatively small city with a population of approximately 130,000 people. It's located midway between Toronto and Montreal and about 160 kilometres south of Ottawa.
Kingston is situated on the waterfront at the eastern-most end of Lake Ontario. It's partly a university town, partly a military town (with CFB Kingston and the Royal Military College), partly an arts hub (with a symphony, several threatre groups and a thriving music scene) and fully unique.
Balance is the key to fuelling inspiration and academic excellence. There's never a shortage of activites in Kingston's vibrant downtown and on the shores of Lake Ontario. Whether you like windsurfing or gathering for coffee, we're confident that you’ll soon think of Kingston as home.
