Visit King's

Explore the college first-hand: absorb a lecture, tour the campus, chat with students and experience a taste of King's.

Link up with Dalhousie

King's and Dalhousie have a unique academic partnership. If your coming to tour King's, why not tour Dalhousie as well?

Discover Halifax

Make the most of your visit to King's by Discovering what Halifax has to offer. Here are three ideas:

  1. The new Halifax Central Library, which opened in 2014.
  2. The Seaport Market, the longest continuously running Market in North America.
  3. Two of our Alumni founded The Coast, Halifax's alternative weekly newspaper. Their annual Best Of Halifax should give you some ideas of what to see and do.

Tour King's

We believe that a campus visit is one of the most important aspects of selecting a university that is right for you. Most students and their families plan to visit King's during a week when classes are in session.

  • Talk one on one with an admissions officer
  • Tour the Campus
  • Sit in on a Foundation Year Programme lecture
  • Enjoy a complementary lunch at Prince Hall.

The tour takes about 2 hours and 45 minutes. Regularly scheduled tours are offered Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, 9:45- 12:30.




Helpful Tips

  • Book your tour before making travel arrangements or booking flights so that we can offer you the best possible tour experience.
  • If you need to book a tour outside of the regular schedule, contact Jacob at
  • Tours are not available when the university is closed, such as the Christmas break (21 December, 2015 - 8 January, 2016). Please check the important dates page for details.
