All information pertains to Spring and Summer 2018.

Application Deadline: April 1, 2018. After April 1, applications may be approved based on availability.

General Information

  • Student housing is limited to the apartments on the fifth floor of the apartment building.
  • King’s reserves the right to fill each apartment to capacity (six students); additional students may be assigned or moved at the discretion of the university at any time during the summer.
  • All rental rates are per student, regardless of how many people occupy an apartment at a given time.
  • The King's University may cancel your lease due to inappropriate use of the apartment, inappropriate behaviour while on King’s campus, or failure to make payments.
  • The lease choice and duration of lease must be chosen in the application.
  • Monthly leases are not available. Students who elect to leave residence partway through the residence agreement term will be charged the fees for the remainder of their term. (e.g. A student who leaves June 20 will be charged for July and August rent).

Failure to pay may result in eviction. Interest rates will apply.

A $500 deposit is required to reserve your room and will be used against your first month's rent. A $375 deposit is required for students with a lease only for Spring 1 semester.

Applications for spring housing are processed and accepted no later than April 3, 2018. Deposits are due April 9, 2018 at 4 p.m. Failure to pay your deposit may result in you losing your spot.

Check-In and Check-Out

  • Residence Life oversees check-ins and check-outs. Office is located in A-128.
  • At check-in, students are required to pay first month's rent (if deposit has not been received) and sign a lease agreement which includes the duration of the tenancy.
  • All students must complete a check-in and check-out form to ensure accurate billing.  
  • Before check-out, students are required to thoroughly clean and restore their room to its original arrangement.
  • Failure to check-out or clean the suite results in cleaning charges and improper check-out fines.
  • Students who applied and are accepted for residence in the Fall 2018/19 term and paid their residence deposit are the only individuals permitted to have a lease that includes August 2018. These students will be required to move rooms during early August so the apartments may be prepared for fall housing.
