Residence life is structured around FYP, encouraging you to think about and discuss the ideas from the texts you’re reading with classmates and friends. Learning doesn’t just happen in the classroom. Like you, the president, the Dean of Students, and residence staff called dons all live on campus too. We live, learn and work together in an academic community.

Full-time King’s students are automatically enrolled in the King’s students union’s health and dental plans. If you already have comparable coverage, you can opt out of one or both plans. Part-time students can opt in. Read more about the health plan.
