I am currently a 2nd year master’s student at Queen’s University in microbes, immunity and inflammation. This year is going to be my second year in An Clachan. I am looking forward to it because I have really enjoyed my stay here so far. An Clachan is a Queen’s Community housing for students which makes it a very safe, secure, learned and friendly community. The student community is very diverse, multicultural and multilingual that makes An Clachan living experience even more pleasurable. An Clachan with its comfortable, roomy apartments and large clean playgrounds is a great place for children. It is located in a picturesque and peaceful site in the centre of Kingston. One of the best privileges about living in An Clachan is its close proximity to Kingston Centre where all the facilities for grocery (Loblaws, Rexall, Shopper’s DrugMart and
Dollarama), banking (TD Canada Trust, BMO, CIBC), restaurants (Panda Garden Buffet, Coffeco, Popeyes), health (the Altima Dental Centre), gym (YMCA), internet (Bell, Wind) and bus services are available. There are many organizations to help new comers and immigrants familiarize with Kingston. KEYS job center on 920 Princess Street, Queen’s International center on Queen’s main campus, Immigrant Services Kingston and Area (ISKA) on 263 Weller Avenue are the various resources for employment and immigration that Kingston offers for new residents. There are many recreation sites like Lake Ontario Park, Boys and Girls Club on 559 Bagot Street near An Clachan. All these facilities makes An Clachan a wonderful place to stay.
