Book a Tour

Now offering campus tour webinars

The in-person campus tours program has been suspended due to COVID-19. Since a visit to our campus isn’t possible at the moment, we’d love to connect with you for an online campus tour webinar.

A campus tour is a great way to experience life at King’s.

We have three tour options to accommodate your needs.

1. The Complete First-Year Experience Tour

Between September and April the campus will be buzzing with excitement!

Monday, Wednesday, or Friday
8:45 – 11:30 a.m.

Tours during King’s Reading Week

Between February 17th and 21st morning tours will begin at 10 a.m. and will not include a Foundation Year Program lecture as it’s reading week.

2. Express Campus Tour

Only have time for a brief visit? You’ll still be able to see what makes King’s so special.

Monday, Wednesday, or Friday
2 – 3:30 p.m.

  • Get a guided tour of the campus from a current student
  • An admissions expert will be on hand to answer your questions

3. Summer Tour

The campus is beautiful in the summer (and a little quieter than usual.) Visiting King’s can be a great part of your Nova Scotian vacation!

All weekdays throughout the summer
10-11:30 a.m. or 2-3:30 p.m.
