We are the Queen’s Debating Union, the oldest club at Queen’s University and the oldest debating society in Canada, founded in 1843. We are a proud member of CUSID, the Canadian University Society for Intercollegiate Debate.

The QDU harbours a deep commitment to maintaining both our competitive excellence and open social community. We cherish our traditions and our enduring connections with our alumni.

We meet on Wednesdays and Thursdays in Stirling Auditorium B to hold practice rounds and seminars. In addition to hosting on-campus events, we represent Queen’s University at competitive events across Canada and around the world. Anyone is welcome to attend our meetings. Come and join us – we are always ready to welcome new members!
