Stauffer Library, Kingston

Stauffer Library, Kingston

The Joseph S. Stauffer Library is the main social science and humanities library of Queen's University in Kingston. Construction was completed in 1994 at a cost of C$42 million, funded partially by the Ontario government and the Joseph S. Stauffer Foundation. The library is the largest building on the University campus, with Postmodern architecture referencing the Neo-Gothic style. It won the 1997 Governor General's Award for Architecture.

Stauffer Library is the most popular place at Queen's University for students to study. Its popularity has given it the nickname "Club Stauff" amongst Queen's students. Each floor of Stauffer is known for its typical users. Many groups use the first floor because of its convenience and comfort. The second floor is usually filled with Commerce students who are studying their required readings. This floor is also home to the Fireplace and Art Collection rooms. The third and fourth floors are the quietest as they are furthest from the lobby. There is a large group of loyal fourth floor studiers because of this.
