About Us

The Ban Righ Centre: a safe, welcoming space and resource centre


We assist women of all ages, especially those who are returning to university after a time away, to continue formal or informal education. Here, women from diverse backgrounds find community, practical, personal and financial support in an informal setting prepared to meet their particular needs. This environment supports academic endeavours, encourages mutuality and equality, and nurtures and respects women. These services are offered without charge or membership.

The Ban Righ Centre is an example of the spirit of community outreach that is an integral part of Queen’s past, present, and future vision. It serves as an example of what a university can do for its members as well as for the surrounding community.
