Learning Environment

Goodes Hall is the home of Smith School of Business on the Queen’s University campus. However, the School’s learning environment extends well beyond the walls of this amazing building. With an off-campus conference centre in Kingston, a state-of-the art facility in downtown Toronto, and Boardroom Learning Centres across Canada, Smith School of Business is truly Canada’s business school.

Goodes Hall

Goodes Hall, the home of Smith School of Business, combines the history of a preserved 1892 schoolhouse, with the contemporary design, architecture and cutting-edge learning tools of a modern business school. Named in honour of the family of Mel Goodes, a Commerce ‘57 alumnus, Goodes Hall was conceived, designed and constructed not just as a building, but also as a community. The guiding principle from the outset was to create a space that would enable maximum interaction between the School’s students, faculty and staff. This state-of-the-art, 188,000 square foot facility includes a large central atrium, 16 classrooms, 20 meeting rooms, as well as faculty and administrative offices. The building’s west wing, which opened in 2012, has been LEED ® Gold certified.

Goodes Hall is also home to the School's impressive videoconferencing studios, which allow professors to see and converse with their Executive MBA students in boardroom learning centres in cities across North America.


SmithToronto is located on the 30th floor, 200 Front Street West and is easily accessible by GO, subway and the PATH system. Smith School of Business delivers many programs and classes here and it is home to the Master of Finance, Master of Management Analytics, and Master of Management in Artificial Intelligence programs. The site includes classrooms, meeting rooms, staff offices, special events spaces, and a variety of multi-media presentation systems. As well, it includes three Boardroom Learning Centres with fully interactive videoconference capabilities. These rooms are used to deliver classes for Smith’s Executive and Accelerated MBA programs.

SmithToronto is also home to the IBM Canada | Smith Cognitive Computing Centre.

Donald Gordon Conference Centre

The Donald Gordon Conference is located just west of the Queen’s University main campus and is home to many Queen's non-degree Executive Education programs. As well, the facility is used by some of the School’s MBA and Toronto-based Master’s programs during on-campus sessions.

The Centre includes 82 private and comfortable guest rooms, 3 classrooms, several meeting rooms, a large dining room, a well-equipped fitness room, several large open areas, as well as an exterior central courtyard. The Donald Gordon Conference Centre is well-known for its executive level customer service and outstanding cuisine.
