Your new friends are just a hop across the hall or a flight of stairs away!
The large, spacious rooms of King's Tower residence are located at the very centre of campus. This means your classes are just minutes away from where you live, work, and play. With three lounges, modern laundry facilities, and fully furnished dorms with private washrooms, the Tower is the perfect place to begin your adventure away from home.
Tower rooms are generally reserved for first-year students and are located on floors four to eight of the Tower. Rooms are generally double occupancy; however, some triple occupancy rooms may become available if demand is high. First-year students who apply for residence and pay their residence deposit by June 15 are guaranteed a room (double occupancy). Take a look at the breakdown of residence costs.
Fun fact: Before King's purchased the property in 1989, the Tower residence was actually part of a hotel--that means it has some of the largest dorm rooms in Alberta!
