Campus Tours FAQ

Want to visit King’s? Here are some Frequently Asked Questions.

If you’re ready for a visit, you can book a tour year round.

When are tours offered?

During the school year (September to April) Campus Tours are generally offered on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. Tours from 8:45 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. showcase the entire campus and give you the chance to sit in on a first-year class. Tours that begin at 2 p.m. are shorter and don’t include the classroom experience.

If you come for a campus tour during the summer (April to August) you can schedule a tour on any weekday at 10 a.m. or 2 p.m.

What will be included in the tour?

Our Complete First-Year Experience Tour (Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at 8:45 a.m.) will include sitting in on the first half of a lecture in the Foundation Year Program. It also includes a guided tour of campus led by a current student. You’ll see a residence room along with all the major campus spaces and buildings. Complimentary lunch in our dining hall is also included. If you wish, you can stay on campus after the tour and chat with an admissions expert who can address specific questions about the admissions process and scholarships.

If you come for an Express Campus Tour or a tour during the summer you won’t be able to sit in on a lecture or join us for lunch. However, you’ll still see the whole campus including a residence room.

Does the tour show any of Dalhousie?

Dalhousie and King’s are separate institutions with a unique relationship that binds us together. The tour will includes an explanation of how this relationship influences student life; however each school conducts its own tours. To book a campus tour at Dalhousie, please contact campus.tours@dal.ca or at (902) 494-3753. Dalhousie tours typically begin at 10:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. If you want to visit both universities, we recommend visiting King’s in the morning and Dalhousie in the afternoon.

 

How much does the tour cost?

King’s tours are free.

I'm not sure I got a tour confirmation email.

When you fill out the Campus Tour submission form, your information is sent in an email, to campus.tours@ukings.ca. You should also expect to receive a confirmation email to the address you provided on the form within the next two business days. If you provided a hotmail or gmail email address, please keep an eye on your junk mail folder because these email providers sometimes filter email sent from campus.tours@ukings.ca. You may want to add the “@ukings.ca” domain to your safe list to make sure you receive future communication from King’s.

Where will the tour meet?

The tours will meet in the Registrar’s Office at the University of King’s College. King’s is located at 6350 Coburg Road, in Halifax, Nova Scotia. When you enter campus from Coburg, the Arts and Administration Building (“The A&A”) will be on your right. It has large pillars and a staircase in front of it. The Registrar’s Office is the first door on your left once you’ve entered The A&A.
