King's and Dalhousie campuses will close at 7 p.m. on Friday, September 23 due to Hurricane Fiona: this closure will remain in effect until at least Sunday morning at 8 a.m. An update will be shared prior to that time on the status of campus operations for Sunday and Monday.
As we enter new phases of reopening, in-person events on campus remain limited. King’s priority is to ensure the health and safety of all. When circumstances allow, we will again organize safe, in-person events for the King’s community.
Through online technology, alumni are now better connected wherever we are in the world. Check this page regularly, as new virtual events are added frequently. Make sure your contact information is up to date so that you may receive news, announcements and program schedules via our e-newsletter.
Much like the students’ calendar, the King’s alumni datebook is packed with annual events, camaraderie and a desire to support a college we all remember and love.
