Living in residence instantly plugs students into community. Residence is more than just a room to sleep and study in. It’s a place where students make lasting friendships, get involved in campus events, and experience support throughout their time at King’s.
Three great options to choose from!
Why live in residence?
It's convenient: When you live in residence, classes are only 5 minutes away. The longest part of your commute is a 15-second elevator ride or a quick walk across the street. Since two of our residences are attached to the main campus, you'll get away with wearing flip flops and shorts to class; even in winter. It's easily the most convenient option for easy access to classes, campus, and friends.
All-inclusive: The hassles and extra fees are taken care of for you! Utility bills are handled by us. Parking is free, and there are no damage deposits or unexpected bills at the end of the month.
It's proven you'll do better in school: It's a fact that students learn easier, and get better grades when they feel part of the academic community. In residence, it’s easy to discuss assignments or group work outside of class. You're also are steps away from other academic supports like writing support services, the library, peer support, and academic success course classes.
It's independent: Gain a new level of independence by living in residence. At King’s, you'll find it easy to ease into independent living.
The food's great: Food is one less thing you need to worry about in residence. If you aren’t interested in grocery shopping, menu planning, cooking, and washing dishes, we have a dining services staff that do all that for you! Learn more about meal plans and dining services at King's.
There's nothing like it: Residence students are part of a community from day one. You meet lots of new people quickly and you'll become friends with them before you know it. You'll see all those friendly faces in the halls, in class, and meals. Some of you're new friendships will last a lifetime.
There's lots going on: Students in residence have access to activities such as game nights, group movies, Bible studies, and access to a variety of student lounges. There's also residence specific events and activities planned for the whole residence community as well as Eagles athletics games, Student Association events, and student clubs.
It's safe: Whether or not this is your first time living away from home, living on campus gives you the benefits of independent living but with a safety net if you need it. We have student and professional staff available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to address your concerns or questions. In addition, campus security is always working to ensure campus is a safe and secure.
