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 Visits

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.

Booking your tour

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.
  • The university is closed on Canadian statutory holidays and over the Christmas break (24 December  2014 - 2 January 2015). Tours are not available when the university is closed. Please check the important dates page for details.

School/class Visits

King’s invites school groups to visit the campus Monday through Friday. Our recruitment team would be delighted to arrange a program for your group that includes a presentation from a member of our staff, a tour of the campus, and an opportunity to connect with our faculty.

Contact our recruitment team at 902.422.1271 ext. 263.
