Our students may take any course not offered at King’s at Western, Brescia or Huron. All degrees are granted from The University of Western Ontario.

Residence Life

Living in residence places you at the heart of campus life, close to classrooms, the library, health services, recreational and dining facilities. Residence is much more than a bed and a desk. Our professional and student staff make it their top priority to create living space which supports your needs both in and out of the classroom. Residence Living also provides students with opportunities for personal growth and involvement. At King’s students are encouraged to take an active role in their residence through participation in various activities which include student government, student employment, residence oriented programs, community and athletic events. Research indicates that students who live in residence are less likely to drop out and are highly satisfied with their university experience.

Live in the heart of the university experience! King’s University College offers much more than a convenient place to live on campus – it offers countless opportunities to enhance your university learning and to share the daily excitement and activity of your first year of university with other students. Living in residence is a great way to meet people and feel connected to life at the College. The residence staff and student councils will organize events to help you get to know other residents, and they will be there to offer support and guidance as needed.

King’s University College provides on-campus housing for approximately 360 students. Living in residence puts you next door to all the facilities at King’s, including the dining hall, the library, your classes, and bus service to UWO and the City of London.

Double rooms are the standard accommodation for first year students.

King’s is very pleased to have students from around the world living in residence. In 2008-2009 almost 25% of our residents were international students. We are proud of our multicultural residence community and we encourage residents to embrace the opportunities for cross-cultural learning this community offers.
