Other traditions include Bob Ross Paint Night, Christmas parties, ice skating and hot chocolate, school-wide laser tag, pizza parties, painting the stairwell, and more.

Student Leaders and Staff Supports

Our Student Life team is excited to support you however we can. We're passionate about creating an environment where you belong, know you're safe, and feel supported. Everyone needs someone to talk to or a point in the right direction at some point and student leaders are equipped to lend a hand when you need it.

Residence Assistants (RAs) live on every floor of each residence type and are trained to support students living in residence. If you'd prefer to talk to someone a little older or with particular training and expertise, King's Student Life staff are always available for a quick chat or to offer support.
