Residence applications for the 2021/2022 academic year are now open! When you apply for residence you’ll be able to share important details about your lifestyle preferences (like study habits and sleep habits), request a preferred living environment (gender-neutral, male or female) and tell us a bit about yourself. We spend a lot of time thinking about room assignments, and we consider a lot of factors to get the best fit.
Residence spaces for first-year students are guaranteed until May 1, 2021 and after that are on a first-come, first-serve basis. Applications from returning residents open in February and are guaranteed until May 1, 2021.
We look forward to welcoming you home.
You can find out about what rooms are like, who lives on campus, and the culture of residence life on our living in residence page.
You can submit an application to residence at any time.
Residence applications will be processed by the Residence Office after students receive confirmation of their admission to King’s.
Once you are admitted to King’s, please submit the following fees/deposits so that your residence application can be processed:
Please note: The admission deposit, residence application fee, and residence confirmation deposit are non-refundable.
If you are planning to pay for the above admission and residence fees by cheque, only one cheque is required.
You will receive a receipt number. Please note that it may take up to 48 hours to process your payment.
Note : King’s and Dalhousie universities do not accept payment by credit card for tuition and residence fees. King’s students applying for Canada Student Loans and Provincial Loans must have the loans made out to The University of King’s College as the official institution. Students will forfeit their full deposit if they decide to cancel their residence admission to the university.
Once you have received admission*, submitted an online residence application and paid all the necessary deposits, you will be notified of your residence status via your university email account. Setting up your email account.
*If you are a student from another university applying to residence at King’s (e.g. a NSCAD student), and you do not have a Dalhousie/King’s Banner ID number, please proceed to fill out the Residence Application, after which the Residence Office will request a Banner ID for you. The Banner ID will be emailed to you as soon as it is assigned (note that this can take over a week), after which you will be able to pay your residence fees.
If you have medical conditions that you think we should know about, be sure to click the appropriate button for medical documentation in the online residence application. A medical documentation form will be emailed to your email address, which must be completed by a medical professional and returned to King’s. Students with documented medical conditions may be allocated a single room; however, it cannot be guaranteed.
Roommates at King’s often go on to have life-long friendships. Getting to know your future roommate is easy. As soon as you’re assigned a roommate, you can contact the Residence Office and if we have permission to do so, we will send you his or her contact information. You can get in touch over the summer and get to know one another before arriving on campus.
These students are generally housed in the Angels’ Roost, conveniently located one floor above the School of Journalism. It is a unique and closely-knit community, and the students in this demanding program appreciate the convenience of living in the Roost.
Students who are not registered at King’s can live in residence using the same online application form.
All cancellations must be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org . Please indicate clearly whether you are withdrawing from King’s altogether, or are simply canceling your residence application. Both residence deposits (the $50 application fee and $400 residence deposit) are non-refundable.
If you have received a housing offer from King’s Residence, you may be eligible to defer your space to a future term. Request a deferral by emailing Elisabeth Stones in the Residence Office at email@example.com, and briefly outlining the reason you are requesting a deferral.
If you defer and have paid Residence Application Fee ($50) and/or Residence Confirmation Deposit ($400) they will be held and applied to the following year, at which time you will need to submit a new residence application.
