What are my housing options?

Students can choose to stay in one of our on-campus residences, or make their own housing arrangements off-campus. Students often choose to stay in residence during their first year and then live off-campus during subsequent years of study. This helps students to better adjust to the Canadian culture and make new friends.  King’s will help all students make arrangements for on-campus housing.
