Queens University of Charlotte is a small, private university tucked in the neighborhood of Myers Park. Our class size is a three-digit number, so we’re basically family. 

You know you went to Queens if…

(1) When you tell people you go to “Queens” they assume either Queens College in New York or Queen’s University in Ontario, Canada.

(2) You’ve heard that kissing Diana will help you pass your exams during a campus tour and to never, ever step on the seal in Sykes unless you want to graduate late.


(3) The first Thursday night of fall semester is spent at Prohibition. It’s either a once and done for you, or you spend every Thursday night there with a guaranteed 20 other Queens students.

(4) Midnight Diner becomes a staple in your diet.

(5) You’ve gone to Royal Wednesdays at Chick-Fil-A to get a $3.71 meal with student I.D.
