The Queen’s Student Constables (QSC) were established in 1936 and represent the oldest student-run service on campus, embodying the long-cherished spirit of peer-to-peer responsibility at the core of all Alma Mater Society of Queen’s University (AMS) operations.
Throughout our 83 years of service, QSC’s mission of student safety grew to create both Campus Security and Walkhome, now independent entities and integral components of the Queen’s community. Our modern mandate directs QSC staff to act as both experience facilitators and a safety resource for patrons at a variety of Queen’s events and establishments.
