Apply for Residence

Use our online residence application to apply for residence, available in late fall for the upcoming school year. Through the online application, you can state your lifestyle preferences (like study habits and sleep habits), request a preferred living environment (co-ed, male or female) and tell us a bit about yourself. Please provide us with as much detail as you can to ensure a great roommate match.

Space is limited, and residence is not guaranteed so apply as soon as you’ve been admitted to King’s.

Required Application Fees

  • $50 non-refundable application fee to activate your application.
  • $400 non-refundable residence confirmation deposit
  • $200 admissions deposit. All first-year King’s students must pay this fee before a residence room can be assigned.

Please note: If you are planning to pay for the above admission and residence fees by cheque, only one cheque is required.

Residence status notification

Once you have submitted an online application and paid all the necessary deposits, you will be notified of your residence status via your university email account.

Setting up your email account.

Note: King’s and Dalhousie universities do not accept payment by credit card for tuition and residence fees. King’s students applying for Canada Student Loans and Provincial Loans must have the loans made out to The University of King’s College as the official institution. Students will forfeit their full deposit if they decide to cancel their residence admission to the university.

Medical Needs

If you have medical conditions that you think we should know about, be sure to click the appropriate button for medical documentation in the online residence application. A medical documentation form will be emailed to your Dalhousie email address, which must be completed by a medical professional and returned to King’s. Students with documented medical conditions may be allocated a single room; however, it cannot be guaranteed.

One-Year Bachelor of Journalism Students

These students are generally housed in the Angels’ Roost, conveniently located one floor above the School of Journalism. It is a unique and closely-knit community, and the students in this demanding program appreciate the convenience of living in the Roost.

Roommates

Roommates at King’s often go on to have life-long friendships. Getting to know your future roommate is easy. As soon as you’re assigned a roommate, you can contact the Residence Office and if we have permission to do so, we will send you his or her contact information. You can get in touch over the summer and get to know one another before arriving on campus.

Non-King’s Students

Students who are not registered at King’s can live in residence using the same online application form. Please contact the Residence Office before beginning the online application process.

Cancellations

All cancellations should be emailed to cancellations@ukings.ca. Please indicate clearly whether you are withdrawing from King’s altogether, or are simply canceling your residence application. Both residence deposits (the $50 application fee and $400 residence deposit) are non-refundable.
