Studying and holding events safely on campus
September 15, 2020
The health and safety of our campus is a shared responsibility. As King’s enters Phase C as a blended campus which allows for a limited number of King’s community members to return to campus (including those living on campus) , there will be a need for safe and quiet study and event spaces.
239 study spaces have been made available on a first come, first serve basis in the Student Life Centre, Labatt Hall, Broughdale Hall and Wemple Hall. Students will have access to Wi-Fi, a desk and a quiet study space using social distancing. More information on these study spaces on campus can be found on the King’s website.
No booking is required to use these study spaces, nor is there a time limit. Study space availability will be subject to King’s Hours of Operation. If a space is at capacity, our helpful security staff will direct you to another location to study. Please note that some study spaces will have limited access to electrical outlets.
To create a safer and healthier King’s community, all of us must do our part and take precautionary measures, including:
- Masks in all spaces are required, except while eating or drinking at your study desk or in the Thames Market eating area.
- Students are reminded to complete their daily self-screen before they come to campus.
- Please keep your study areas cleaned. Desks will not be sanitized after each use but will be cleaned daily.
There will also be two event rooms on campus, Rooms LH 105C AND KC 006 beginning September 21. King’s and King’s University College Student Council will be able to hold in-person events in these rooms which can also be streamed virtually. This will allow for an on-campus experience for those students on campus and elsewhere, but in a safe and healthy environment. For more information on events taking place in the events rooms, please consult the Events Calendar.
