COVID-19 Residence FAQ

Even though teaching and learning is happening online, we believe that living in King’s residence may be a good option for students who believe their technology and other academic needs can be better met by living on campus.

Residence Reopening Phases

King’s residences will be reopened in a multi-phase approach. This page will be updated regularly and the most up-to-date residence rules in effect will be posted on the main door of each Bay and Floor.

  • Early Arrival Phase (Self-Isolation)
    August 21-22, 2020 through September 4, 2020
  • Phase 1
    Beginning September 5, 2020 until students are settled into residence (at least two weeks).
  • Phase 2
    Residence is expected to enter Phase 2 in late September at the earliest, depending on the evolving public health situation, advice of King’s Occupational Health & Safety Committee, and student compliance to Residence Guidelines.

Early Arrival Phase

August 21-22, 2020 through September 4, 2020

Frequently Asked Questions

When will I know if I have a room in residence?

Room assignments will be communicated to students in July. Stay tuned for more information.

I haven’t applied yet. Should I still apply?

If you are interested in living in residence, please apply. If the number of students that can safely live on campus is limited, the Residence Office will reach out to you. Please monitor your @dal.ca email as we will be contacting you directly with updates.

What will happen if space is limited in residence? Will I get my $400 deposit back?

If we cannot accommodate you in residence, you will be put on a waitlist. Students who cannot be accommodated in residence due to reduced capacity but who are still planning on attending King’s will have their $400 deposit credited to your student account.

What happens if my plans have changed?

Email residence@ukings.ca by June 15 if you no longer want to live in residence. If you are still planning on attending King’s, your $400 residence deposit will be credited to your student account.

If you are unable to attend King’s or choose to take a gap year for the term specified, you may be eligible to defer your acceptance to King’s to a future term. Please contact Tara Wigglesworth-Hines for more information.

If I am coming from outside of the government designated bubble, can I arrive and move-in to residence early?

Yes. Students who need to self-isolate due to travel outside the current government bubble can self-isolate on campus if they arrive on August 21 or 22, 2020 at an assigned time. Masks and physical distancing will be required at all times during the move-in process. Students’ family members also traveling from outside the government bubble may not be permitted in residence, pending public health advice. Student may be required to move their belongings on their own, with the assistance of residence staff wearing PPE as staff availability allows.

Will I need to self-isolate if I am coming from outside of the government bubble or internationally?

Yes. Students arriving from outside of the government bubble will be required to self-isolate for 14 days within an assigned residence. Meals will be delivered to students’ rooms twice a day (brunch and dinner). Access will be restricted to the assigned room and washroom with no access to other areas of campus (e.g. common areas, kitchens, laundry facilities, dining hall). Every effort will be made for students to self-isolate in their residence room for the academic year during this early arrival phase; however, depending on the scope of the government bubble, students may be located in a designated self-isolation building that will require students to move into their permanent room at the completion of the 14 days. Students who choose to self-isolate off-campus must provide evidence of where they self-isolated to residence@ukings.ca (e.g. receipt from AirBnb or hotel for 14 days, letter from host) before they will be permitted into residence. Consult the most up-to-date information on travel advisories and other government requirements for arriving to Nova Scotia.

Will I have a roommate?

No. All residence rooms will be single occupancy, which means no one will have a roommate. This means there will be no one to steal your food or wake you with their snoring. This also means residence will have about 50% fewer students living on campus (approximately 130).

Can I have guests or visitors in residence?

No. During this early arrival phase, all students living in residence will be self-isolating. This means no guests or visitors are permitted.

Will I be required to wear a mask?

Yes. When worn properly, non-medical masks can reduce the risk of transmitting COVID-19. This is the main tool we have to substantially reduce the risk of transmission. Living in residence means it is our collective responsibility to care for one another. Non-medical masks must be worn at all times when travelling to and from the washroom while in self-isolation. Masks are not required in your bedroom, nor are they required if you have a valid medical exemption. Public Health currently advises: “There are very few reasons not to wear a mask. Wearing a mask doesn’t worsen chronic lung conditions like asthma or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). If you have chronic breathing problems or a mental health condition that creates anxiety, you may need to work on ways to overcome the anxiety (like practicing wearing a mask for short periods of time at home).” Please contact the Residence Office at residence@ukings.ca if you have a valid medical exemption. Students are encouraged to bring their own mask, though non-medical masks will be provided in the COVID-19 Care Kits on arrival. Information about wearing non-medical masks can be found on Nova Scotia’s website.

Will I be required to physically distance?

Yes. Students are required to practice physical distancing when travelling to and from the washroom while in self-isolation.

Will I be allowed to visit different Floors or Bays?

No. Travel is not permitted between residence Floors or Bays while in self-isolation.

Can I use shared spaces such as common rooms, kitchens, and laundry?

No. All shared spaces, including common lounges, kitchens, and laundry rooms, are closed during the early arrival self-isolation period.

Will the Dining Hall be open?

No. King’s dining hall staff will deliver meals to your room twice each day during self-isolation (brunch and dinner). A limited menu will be available, and you will be able to provide dietary restrictions before you arrive on campus. Students who want to order take-out from local restaurants or grocery stores may be limited in their ability to receive deliveries. More information will be available on receiving deliveries before students arrive.

If there is a fire alarm, do I need to evacuate?

Yes. We have designated evacuation muster points for students in self-isolation. You may not remain in your residence room during a fire alarm or other emergency. Students will be provided with this information on arrival. Masks must be worn at all times, barring valid medical exceptions, and students are required to physically distance from one another until the all-clear is given.

Will there be anyone from the Residence Team around to help me?

Of course! During the early arrival self-isolation period, all requests for assistance can be directed to 902-233-1994. Dons and Junior Dons will also be around to help out. You can reach Security at 902-430-7938 after hours.

What if something is wrong with my room? How do I submit a request to get it fixed?

During early arrival self-isolation, only urgent maintenance issues will be addressed to ensure the safety of students and the King’s Facilities team. To submit a maintenance request, please send an email to residence@ukings.ca or call 902-422-1271 and provide as much detail as possible with the issue during business hours. For a major facility-related emergency outside of regular business hours, please call Security at 902-430-7938.

Are residence spaces being cleaned during the self-isolation period?

Yes. All residence spaces will receive enhanced daily cleaning. Self-isolation bathrooms will receive a deep clean at least once a day by custodial staff. Students can leave garbage tied up outside their door for custodial staff to collect (only available during self-isolation). Students are responsible for cleaning their own room during self-isolation with cleaning supplies available on request.

Will there be residence events during the self-isolation period?

There will be no in-person residence activities during the early arrival self-isolation period. However, your Don and Junior Don will connect with you virtually to introduce themselves. Stay tuned for more information on Orientation Week and Residence programming.

Can I leave the government-mandated bubble and come back to residence?

Anyone required to self-isolate should not be traveling. Students are also strongly discouraged from travelling outside the government bubble at any time during the academic year, but first the Residence team wants to help students through these first couple weeks!

All this sounds pretty serious. Will I get kicked out if I break the rules?

Probably. Students are taking on the extraordinary task of studying at university during a pandemic. If you are a King’s student, you must be pretty smart already so the residence community, campus community, and broader municipal and provincial communities trust King’s students to abide by all campus and government rules. King’s is committed to helping students understand why campus rules are important and will update students through their @Dal email address and on the King’s website. It is expected that campus rules (including residence guidelines) will change as the year goes on. Students are encouraged to stay up to date on ongoing developments to campus and government rules. It is our collective responsibility to hold one another accountable to ensure a safe, supportive environment for us to live and learn together. A serious infraction will have serious consequences, including the possible termination of a student’s residence agreement.

What if I decide residence isn’t for me and decide to move out?

Students should not move out while self-isolating to reduce the risk of possibly transmitting the virus to others (including loved ones). We know this may be hard. Residence during COVID-19 may not be for everyone. The goal of King’s phased approach to reopening is to provide hope of increased activities when it becomes safe to do so. In order to get to that point, King’s will need students’ help to sacrifice in the short-term for longer-term gains. Students who choose to withdraw will be given as much flexibility as possible, including the pro-rated refund of residence fees. Contact the Residence Office at residence@ukings.ca or Tim Lade, Assistant Dean of Residence, at tim.lade@ukings.ca for more information on withdrawing from residence.

I have more questions. Who can help me?

We anticipate questions from students and their families about residence. Don’t hesitate to reach out! Chances are if one student has a question, other students will have the same. Students are encouraged to reach out directly since, due to confidentiality, the Residence Office may be limited to what we can tell family members. Information will be available on:

Additional questions can be directed to the Residence Office at residence@ukings.ca or Tim Lade, Assistant Dean of Residence, at tim.lade@ukings.ca

Phase 1

Beginning September 5, 2020 until students are settled into residence (at least two weeks).

Frequently Asked Questions

When will I be able to move into residence?

Students travelling from within the government bubble will move in between September 5 and 7. Students will be assigned one-hour move-in time slots. Students will be allowed one helper to assist them with moving belongings. Helpers will only be allowed in the student’s residence room for the designated hour and will only be allowed access to washrooms in the A&A Building. Everyone will be screened on arrival and be required to wear masks for the duration of their time on campus. The move-in schedule will allow for only one student per entrance/building to move in at a time. Masks and physical distancing will be required at all times during the move-in process.

If I am coming from inside the government bubble, will I be required to self-isolate?

No. Only those students arriving from outside of the government bubble need to self-isolate. Students experiencing COVID-19 symptoms should not come to campus. If a student is experiencing COVID-19 symptoms, they should contact 811 and may need to self-isolate pending direction from Public Health. The Residence Office will reschedule the student’s move-in time.

Will I have a roommate?

All residence rooms will be single occupancy, which means no one will have a roommate. This means there will be no one to steal your food or wake you with their snoring. This also means residence will have about 50% fewer students living on campus (approximately 130). We will do our best to accommodate neighbour requests, though this is not guaranteed. The usual thought and consideration will be given to how rooms are assigned. The Foundation Year Program will be making efforts to assign at least some students from a residence Bay or Floor in the same on-line FYP tutorial.

Can I have guests or visitors in residence?

No. Other than one helper to assist with the moving process, guests or visitors from outside or inside the residence community are not permitted in Phase 1. Students can visit other students physically distanced in the Quad, Prince Hall, or in their residence’s designated common rooms. Please see below for more information on the use of shared spaces and visiting other residence spaces during Phase 1.

Non-compliance by any student will result in the closure of the common room for their residence or the removal of other privileges and the possible termination of the student’s residence agreement (in which case students will be given 48 hours’ notice to vacate residence).

Will I be required to wear a mask?

Yes. When worn properly, non-medical masks can reduce the risk of transmitting COVID-19. This is the main tool we have to substantially reduce the risk of transmission. Living in residence means it is our collective responsibility to care for one another. Masks are not required in a student’s bedroom or bathroom, nor are they required if you have a valid medical exemption. Public Health currently advises: “There are very few reasons not to wear a mask. Wearing a mask doesn’t worsen chronic lung conditions like asthma or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). If you have chronic breathing problems or a mental health condition that creates anxiety, you may need to work on ways to overcome the anxiety (like practicing wearing a mask for short periods of time at home).” Please contact the Residence Office at residence@ukings.ca if you have a valid medical exemption. Students are encouraged to bring their own mask, though non-medical masks will be provided in the COVID-19 Care Kits on arrival.

Information about wearing non-medical masks can be found at https://novascotia.ca/coronavirus/staying-healthy/#masks

Will I be required to physically distance?

Yes. All students are required to practice physical distancing whenever possible. This is King’s “new normal”.

Will I be allowed to visit different Floors or Bays?

No. To reduce the risk of all residence buildings needing to self-isolate at the same time, students are not permitted in other residence buildings in Phase 1. That means, students living in on a certain Floor in Alex Hall may only be on their Floor in Alex Hall (except for the Manning Room, shared by Alex Hall). Students living in the Roost may only be in the Roost. Students living in the Bays may only be in their Bay (except the Middle Bay Common Room, shared by all Tri-Bays). Students’ swipe card access will be given accordingly.

Why? King’s has 33 beds in designated self-isolation buildings. That is one bed for approximately every four students. This is more than the CDC’s recommendation of one bed for every seven people, however it is still limited if entire Bays and Floors are exposed and need to self-isolate. The first two weeks after students move into residence will be a higher risk time since travel increases the risk of exposure and some people, especially if they are young and healthy, may be asymptomatic and transmit the virus unknowingly. These measures will reduce the risk of all residences needing to self-isolate and revert to the Early Arrival Phase.

All residence students will have access to the A&A main door from 7 AM to 8 PM, 7 days a week to access Prince Hall for meals. Students with accessibility needs will have access to the link via the New Academic Building. Students in the Roost will have access to the A&A main door 24/7, but will not have access to the elevator in accordance with the Journalism School’s safety plan since the elevator opens into their restricted office and classroom space.

Can I share my keys or access card?

No. But nice try. Sharing swipe cards and/or keys would undermine our collective safety and Public Health’s ability to contact trace. Each swipe card/key is issued and tracked in a student’s name. Students who lose their key or get locked out should call the Alex Hall Front Desk at 902 422 6011 (or extension 132 from a residence phone). Replacement fees may apply. A student found sharing swipe cards/keys or giving access to students who do not live in their residence space during Phase 1 may have their residence agreement terminated with 48 hours’ notice to leave residence.

Can I use shared spaces such as common rooms, kitchens, and laundry?

Yes, if it is in your Bay, Floor, or designated space for laundry. Kitchen, laundry, and other shared spaces will be open with a limit to how many students may be in these shared areas at a times. Spaces have been reconfigured to allow for physical distancing. Masks must be worn at all times while in these spaces. Students are asked to clean any common touchpoints before and after use (e.g. cooking surfaces, laundry machines handles, etc.). Cleaning supplies will be provided in each space.

Students who disrespect set occupancy limits or physical distancing will be subject to follow-up under the Residence Guidelines and may result in the closure of shared spaces across residence buildings. Alcohol is not permitted in any shared space.

Will Prince Hall be open?

Yes. Prince Hall will be open for all residence students and residence staff. Hours of operation will be posted soon. A creative physical distancing setup will be in effect. Non-residence folks will not be served in Prince Hall during Phase 1. Take out options will be available for residence students who want to eat outside or in their room. Physically distanced tables of four and limited single seating will be available. Sadly, there will be no long communal tables in Phase 1.

Will there be anyone from the Residence Team around to help me?

Of course! Dons and Junior Dons will be available within residence to continue to build community, offer support, and run events and programming. Additional Junior Dons have been hired to provide additional safety and security to students in residence. These upper-year students live in residence and work “patrol” shifts from 8 PM until 2 AM every day. The Alex Hall Front Desk will operate 24/7, by students or Monica, King’s Residence Receptionist, from 7 AM to 2 AM and by Security from 2 AM to 7 AM. Students who do not live in Alex Hall may contact the Front Desk via phone at 902-422-6011 (or extension 132 from a residence phone).

What if something is wrong with my room? How do I get it fixed?

Students are encouraged to speak up if there is something not working in their room so King’s Facilities can perform the necessary repairs. The Facilities team has plans to conduct repairs safely in residence during COVID-19, though it will take longer for non-urgent repairs to be addressed. To submit a maintenance request, please send an email to residence@ukings.ca or call the Alex Hall Front Desk to provide as much detail as possible with the issue.

Is the residence being cleaned more extensively?

Yes. All residence spaces will receive enhanced daily cleaning. Residence bathrooms will be cleaned 4-5 times daily. Students are responsible for keeping their individual rooms clean and are strongly encouraged to dispose of food garbage in the common bins as soon as possible to avoid attracting unwanted guests that like to snack. Cleaning supplies will be available to students. Contact the Alex Hall Front Desk for more information about where to find supplies.

Will there be residence programming during Phase 1?

Residence programming will be mostly virtual in Phase 1. Don and Junior Dons may organize limited in-person essential activities (e.g. first Bay/Floor meeting) as long as:

  • Only students from their Bay or Floor attend (attendance will be recorded for contact tracing).
  • Masks are worn by all participating.
  • It is hosted outdoors or in a larger campus space where physical distancing can be maintained (open windows are recommended, just don’t forget to close them!).
  • It complies with other government- and campus-safety requirements.

Physically distanced in-person support with Dons and/or Junior Dons will be possible in designated spaces.

Can I leave the government bubble and come back to residence?

Students should avoid non-essential travel, especially outside the government bubble at any time during the academic year. Residence students who travel outside the bubble for non-essential reasons may be required to make their own arrangements for self-isolation off campus at their own cost.

All this sounds pretty serious. Will I get kicked out if I break the rules?

Probably. Students are taking on the extraordinary task of studying at university during a pandemic. If you are a King’s student, you must be pretty smart already so the residence community, campus community, and broader municipal and provincial communities trust King’s students to abide by all campus and government rules.

A serious infraction will have serious consequences, including the possible termination of a student’s residence agreement (in which case students will be given 48 hours’ notice to vacate residence).

King’s COVID-19 safety plans are integral to ensuring residence and the rest of campus is as safe as possible during the pandemic. Students’ actions have ripple effects in our community. We are confident that King’s students living in residence will use this influence for good and be examples of how to make the best of residence life under these conditions.

Phase 2

Late September at the earliest, depending on the evolving public health situation, advice of King’s Occupational Health & Safety Committee, and student compliance to Residence Guidelines.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I have guests or visitors in residence?

Yes, if they also live in King’s residence. Students may have one residence student in their room, provided that:

  • Neither student has symptoms of COVID-19.
  • Student can visit physically distanced (i.e. six feet apart).
  • Opening the windows are also recommended.

Students are encouraged to visit other students physically distanced in the Quad, Prince Hall, or in their residence’s designated common rooms.

Students should only use the designated bathroom in their Bay or Floor to limit the number of students sharing facilities and to reduce the possible spread of the virus. Students should not stay overnight in other residence spaces in order to maintain the designated bathroom arrangements.

Residence students are not permitted to have guests from outside the residence community in residence spaces.

Non-compliance by any student will result in the closure of the common room for their residence or the removal of other privileges and the possible termination of the student’s residence agreement (in which case students will be given 48 hours’ notice to vacate residence).

Will I be required to wear a mask?

Yes. In the words of Dr. Robert Strang, Nova Scotia’s Chief Medical Officer: “Please don’t ask, just wear a mask.” Please contact the Residence Office at residence@ukings.ca if you have a valid medical exemption.

Information about wearing non-medical masks can be found at https://novascotia.ca/coronavirus/staying-healthy/#masks

Will I be required to physically distance?

Yes. All students are required to practice physical distancing whenever possible. This is King’s “new normal”.
