Professors of the Year, 16 NCAA Division II men's and women's sports teams, and exemplary international study and internship programs that have been named among the best in the country.
Queens University of Charlotte provides educational experiences that transform students' lives and foster personal and professional success.
The Queens University of Charlotte campus is less than three miles away from Uptown Charlotte, North Carolina. Charlotte is located in Mecklenburg County and is one of the fastest growing business and arts communities in the nation, a thriving metropolitan center known for outdoor recreation, quality of life and a vibrant business community. The city lies just two hours from the Blue Ridge mountains and four hours from the beaches, three and a half hours from Atlanta, nine hours from Tampa, 24 hours from Fargo... well, you get the idea.
As a Queens student, you can take advantage of as little or as much of the Charlotte scene as you wish. That's the beauty of it. It's not just recreation, either. Our core program, internship program, and student development programs take students out of the classroom and introduce them to real-world opportunities in the Charlotte community. It's the ultimate lab course.
