When are tours generally offered?

Campus tours are generally offered during the school year on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. They begin at 9:45am and run until 12:30pm.

Every campus tour will include a discussion with a Recruitment Officer, sitting in on the second half of the Foundation Year Programme, a guided campus tour including residences and complimentary lunch in our Dining Hall.

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 include an in-depth 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 10:30am and 2:30pm. Accordingly, if you are planning on visiting King’s and Dalhousie on the same day, please book Dalhousie’s afternoon tour.

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 Request form, your information is sent in an email, to campus.tours@ukings.ca. You should also expect to receive a confirmation e-mail 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.
