Arriving in Canada
When you arrive at the airport, there are several ways to get into the city and/or to King's.
The International Students' Office
The International Students Office would love to welcome you at Edmonton’s International Airport. If you do not have relatives or friends in Edmonton to pick you up, please inform the International Students Office of your flight arrangements at least one week ahead of time and we will have someone waiting for you at the airport. Arrangements can be made by contacting the Coordinator of Intercultural Student Programs (CISP).
Sky Shuttle Service
You can also take the Sky Shuttle Service which brings you to some of the major hotels in the city. A one-way ticket costs $18 and you must pre-book online at http://edmontonskyshuttle.com/ or by phone at 780-465-8515.
A slightly cheaper option is to take the Edmonton Transit Service (ETS) Route 747 to get to Century Park LRT Station in Edmonton. From there, you can either take the LRT or the bus service to get around the city. Each one-way ticket costs $5. Click here for more information.
Arrive on or before move-in day
If you are moving into residence for the fall semester, please have your flights arranged to arrive in Edmonton before or on the move-in date in the letter addressed to you by the Residence Life Coordinator, Alison Exner. For students not planning on living in residence, please arrive early so you can get settled and attend New Student Orientation and the International Student Orientation.
It is extremely important that you attend both orientation events. They cover information that is highly pertinent to your study at King’s.
When you arrive at King’s, please report to the International Student’s Office (A129) for a meet-and-greet with the Coordinator of Intercultural Student Programs (CISP).
