Arriving in Canada

When you arrive at the airport, there are several ways to get into the city and/or to King's.

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 or by phone at 780-465-8515.

Route 747

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 Nate Wright, Residence Life Coordinator. 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).
