Life on Campus

There is no limit to the creativity of a King's student and our diverse, kaleidoscopic campus life is proof.

It's impossible to miss out on campus life at King's. Walk through any door and you'll land in the middle of it: a dress rehearsal in the Pit, a wine and cheese party in a common room, a game of pool or foosball in the Wardroom, a budding photographer at work in the darkroom, or the choir singing in the chapel. Walk out any door and you'll land in the centre of the quad, a space that invites you to curl up under a tree as you tackle the next day's reading, or to pull out your guitar (clarinet, accordion, bagpipes—we welcome it all) and jam with a few friends. 
Beyond the tight-rope walkers, tree climbers and bocce ball players that pepper the quad spontaneously, King's also has a campus life is rooted in traditional events and a myriad of student-run groups and initiatives. From an ever-growing roster of societies to a thriving music community and an enthusiastic and dedicated athletics department, everything is in place for King's students to bring their passion and energy to the extracurricular side of their education.
