Living On Campus

There is a dynamic team of residence leaders that provide programming and events to make living in residence at King's a more enjoyable experience.

If you're considering moving to Edmonton to attend King's, or looking to move out for the first time, King's residence is a great place to live. Not only does King's residence boast some amazing amenities--like spacious dorm rooms and great themed common spaces--it's also a perfect place to meet new people.

There's always something going on in residence, and our Student Life team are excited to support you however we can. We're passionate about creating an environment where you belong, know you're safe, and feel supported. Whether you're a student with a strong independent streak or someone looking for a little more structure and support as you move out on your own, living in residence plugs you into one of the most amazing communities in the city!

Student Leaders and Staff Supports

Everyone needs someone to talk to or a point in the right direction, and student leaders are equipped to help you out when you need it. (They're also awesome people to be friends with.)

Residence Assistants (RAs) are student leaders who live on each floor of the tower and the apartments. They're trained to support residents at King’s, and it's their job to organize events, help with relationship disputes, and ensure everything runs smoothly on each floor. An evening RA is on duty each night from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. for any student emergencies overnight.

Ministry Assistants (MAs) are student leaders whose encourage spiritual growth on campus. They lead small groups, bible studies, service projects, and help plan regular campus worship. If you have questions about faith or are looking to get involved in Campus Ministries, or talk to a Ministry Assistant.

There may be a time when 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 a helping hand. The Residence Life Coordinator lives in the Tower Residence and oversees programming, residence assistants, and other student concerns.
