Who Are We

Established in 1936, the Queen’s StudCons (QSC) represent the oldest student-run service on campus, embodying the spirit of peer-to-peer responsibility that is at the core of all AMS operations. QSC has been promoting an accountable campus culture for over 80 years, including the establishment of Campus Security and Walkhome, both are services that have become integral parts of the Queen’s community.

Currently, QSC staff act as both experience facilitators and resources for patrons at a variety of Queen’s events and establishments. 

Joshua Bolton

Head Manager

Josh has been with the Queen’s Student Constables for 3 years having held every position available in the service. He just completed the requisites for a Bachelor of Arts (Hon) with a focus on Western European History. As a former nurse with fifteen years of experience in the health care system, Josh likes to present a mental-health-focused management style that will benefit the clients and staff equally.

Training, Preparation and Communication have been the core values of the service under Josh’s management as they prepare for a post-covid reopening. As the post-covid reopening of campus life begins, it will become even more important to focus on the effects of long-term isolation and self-distancing will have on the student body. With this in mind, Josh has endeavoured to implement new training protocols within the service that will help staff recognize the signs of distress and mental wellness while being able to provide the necessary resources to seek help.

When not at work Josh prefers to keep a hands-on approach to life by engaging in hobbies like gardening, woodworking and art collecting. An avid reader, Josh has a knack for listing random facts and regularly engages in discussions based on his extensive library. Someday Josh hopes he will get the chance to be on the security team during a Kevin Smith Q&A at Queen’s Campus.
