Living on Campus
YOUR HOME @ KING'S
Living in residence offers another dimension to your King’s experience. Living close to all the resources at King’s and living with classmates is an excellent way to thrive academically. Living in residence is convenient, but more importantly, it is a supportive learning environment. We know that your first-year experience is an important time of transition and we are here to help you achieve your goals. We also know that upper year students often want the support and convenience of residence with more flexible meal plan options. In addition to the full-time staff in the Residence and Campus Life Office, Residence Assistants, Residence Sophs, and King’s Academic Peer Mentors are all here to offer peer support.
King's University College provides on-campus housing for approximately 400 students. Living in residence puts you next door to all the facilities at King's, including food services, the library, your classes, and bus service to Western and the City of London. Epworth Houses, King's Commons and most International House rooms are single rooms (single room request form is not required).
Double rooms are the standard accommodation for first year students. Students with special considerations may submit a Single Room Request form for consideration. This form can be downloaded from the Online Residence Application site.
