Campus Renewal Program
University is a remarkable time in a students life. It provides enduring inspiration and friendships that last lifetimes. Late night study sessions, evening group projects, research in the library or the lab after class—all contribute to a sense of 'campus'—the backdrop for education, ingenuity, and possibility.
In 2020, King's embarked on a long-term campus revitalization project with the goal of developing spaces that empower flexible student experiences and amplify the self-starter nature of our student body. Each improvement to campus is made possible through gifts from supporters.

Great conversations and memories are formed over food and King's completely reimagined cafeteria now features cozy booths with individual TVs, bar-style counters for snacks and meals on the go, comfortable soft-seating, and a large media lounge; all in a pleasant, relaxing atmosphere for students to retreat to.

It's important to have spaces to prep and debrief; to wind-up or wind-down. Team rooms are important for building team cohesion and provide a professional, branded space for athletes to get excited about representing their university.

Trees for Tomorrow
The best time to plant a tree was yesterday! Nearly 1000 trees were planted on campus as part of King's Trees for Tomorrow project, an initiative that will brings environmental, wellness, and aesthetic benefits to campus while establishing the university as separate and distinct from its industrial surroundings.
