The stately Arts & Administration Building houses the School of Journalism, Prince Hall, the Wardroom, and much more.
Prince Hall is where Kings’ dining services are located and it is the venue for many traditional events, including Formal Meals. Stop by for breakfast on your way to class, or linger over your books with a cup of tea.
The home of the Foundation Year Programme since 2001, the “NAB” has lecture halls and seminar rooms and might be where your favourite prof holds office hours. It connects to the A&A via “the Link.”
Attached to the right and left sides of the A&A Building, the Bays are among King’s residences.
Chapel and Radical Bays sandwich the appropriately named Middle Bay. Look for the statue over the door of Middle Bay, showing Aeneas fleeing Troy, taking his father, his son and the household gods with him.
Alexandra Hall is the largest residence building on campus, with the capacity to accommodate approximately 150 students. Declared one of the most beautiful Canadian residence buildings by the Huffington Post in September 2016, it was built in the 1960s, its front desk is the hub for residence services and campus communications after-hours. The Dean of Students’ apartment can be found off the main lobby and the residence dons’ suites are located on each floor.
At King’s, a 2,500 square-foot fitness studio, equipped with sprung hardwood floor, is optimal for dance, aerobics and self-defence classes. The cardio fitness centre equipment includes treadmills, elliptical trainers, upright bikes, recumbent bikes, rowing machines, a stair climber and a cross trainer.
In addition to its estimated 80,000 circulating volumes and fine collection of rare books, the Library is also a museum, housing art, artifacts and the oldest collection of ceramics in Canada.
The University of King’s College Chapel Choir comprises 24 choristers from the King’s College and Dalhousie University communities, many of whom are students receiving choral or organ scholarships. View the Chapel website for details on upcoming performances.
The President’s Lodge hosts many of Kings’ traditional events and receptions, from matriculation to Encaenia and many special events in between.
