King’s is Canada’s oldest chartered university and our rich history and traditions are alive and well today. You can attend Formal Meals, join societies founded in the 19th century and participate in Matriculation and Encaenia ceremonies.
Your King’s Experience is made up of these traditions and the forward-looking students and faculty part of our living and learning community.
The vitality, diversity and solidarity of the King’s community are born through our traditions, whether they’re 230 years old, or only two or three years old. Learn more about King’s history and some of our College traditions.
