Arriving in Canada

Upon arriving 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 1 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 will bring 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.

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 will be moving into Residence for the Fall semester, please have your flights arranged to arrive in Edmonton before or on the move-in date specified in the letter addressed to you by the Residence Life Coordinator. For students not planning on living in residence, please plan to arrive early so you can get settled and attend New Student Orientation and the International Student Orientation.

It is of the utmost importance that you attend both orientation events as you will receive information that is highly pertinent to your study at King’s.

Upon your arrival 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).
