Before visiting us, let our students show you around campus, sharing what a day at King's really looks like. More >>


The college keeps a busy schedule of public lectures and talks that are open to the community at large. This means you, too. Check our events listings for upcoming lectures. More >>

Visit King's

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

Campus tours

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. This means that you can not only meet with an admissions officer and have a guided tour of campus, but  sit in on a Foundation Year Programme lecture, too. We also invite you to enjoy a complementary lunch in our meal hall.

Please note we will NOT be offering campus tours from August 25, 2014 to September 15, 2014.

Booking your tour

We are happy to provide personalized tours for you, your family, and friends. Please let us know that you are coming at least one week in advance by filling out a tour form. If you would like to tour Dalhousie University on the same visit, you can arrange your tour by visiting the Dalhousie website.

Please note the following:

  • Please book your tour before making travel arrangements or booking flights so that we can offer you the best possible tour experience.
  • Regularly scheduled tours are offered Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, 9:30- 12:30. Please note we will NOT be offering campus tours from August 25, 2014 to September 15, 2014.
  • The university is closed on Canadian statutory holidays and over the Christmas break (20 December  2013 - 2 January 2014). Tours are not available when the university is closed. Please check the important dates page for details.
