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

We suggest you come on a Monday, Wednesday or Friday between 9:45 and 12:30 p.m. during the September to April school year when campus is buzzing.

Before you book a flight, please let us know at least one week ahead so we can can be ready. If you have questions, try our FAQ.
