2020-03-17: The global COVID-19 crisis continues to unfold as do institutional and government responses. We are monitoring the situation and responding to guidance and imperatives from Queen's University. For now we intend to stay open for individual researchers for the Spring and Summer but encourage them to access our facilities and landbase each day from home packing their own bagged lunch. We will not host gatherings of more than 10 people, and field courses, large workshops and other such meetings will not be hosted until further notice. For researchers from farther away, we will work to accommodate you in our facilities but will seek to ensure 'social distancing' with only one person per cabin, plenty of hand sanitizer and soap and water, and access to cooking facilities so that individuals may provide for themselves (we are exploring kitchen options). Please contact us should you have questions and note that our plans and actions may change as the situation evolves. Here is a link to COVID-19 resources at Queen's: https://www.queensu.ca/covidinfo/

Should you have questions regarding activities at QUBS please contact our Senior Manager Sonia Nobrega, Operations Managers of our two campuses, Aron Zolderdo and Adam Morcom, of QUBS Director Stephen Lougheed.

Please check back regularly for the latest updates.

Chaffey's Lock Bridge Closure March 31st to April 16th inclusive

March 21st, 2015

The bridge at Chaffey's Lock will be closed from April 13th through April 28th inclusively. Over this time you will need to use an alternate route to get to QUBS. From Ottawa, via Highway 15, one could turn west at Crosby (Hwy 42 to Newboro Locks and Westport), then south on Perth Rd to Opinicon Rd. From Kingston or any visitors west of QUBS, using theĀ eastbound 401, one can travel north on Division St. (Perth Road), north to Opinicon Rd., and then east to QUBS. Travelers from east of Kingston (e.g. Gananoque) might wish to use this latter route as well.
