The former US secretary of state is the university’s 11th chancellor and first woman to take up the post.
In a statement, Mrs Clinton said it was a “great privilege” to become the chancellor of QUB.
She takes up her role immediately and will serve for a period of five years, succeeding Dr Tom Moran – who died last year.
While the role of chancellor is mainly a ceremonial one, securing Mrs Clinton will be seen as a coup for Queen’s.
The chancellor often presides at graduation ceremonies and is also an ambassador for the university abroad.
