QUILL(Queen's Institute for Lifelong Learning) is a volunteer-run organization created in 1993 to encourage lifelong learning in the adult community of Kingston.

QUILL offers a variety of different programs for a fee of $50 for both Fall and Winter Terms (25 weeks from September - April), or $35 for either Fall or Winter term.

The Sunday afternoon lecture series attracts a wide range of professional speakers from Kingston and area who share their knowledge with participants. In the past, lecturers have spoken on local history, the military, the environment, health, politics, religion and other issues of interest to the Kingston community. These lectures take place from 2:00 to 3:30 pm in Room 101 at Goodes Hall on the Queen's University campus (143 Union St.) unless otherwise indicated.

For Tuesday afternoons, individual members speak in a seminar format on their special area of interest and invite discussion. The interest and fun of researching favorite subjects is a bonus for the speakers. This takes place from 1:30 to 3:30 pm at the Royal Kingston Curling Club, at the corner of Front and Days Road in Kingston West. 

At both the Sunday and Tuesday locations there is ample free parking and the sites are wheel chair accessible.
