Student Leadership 

The Residence Representative serves on King’s Students’ Union Council and represents the views and concerns of residents to the KSU and university administration. They are elected every October by current residents.


Patrol is a group of upper year students who are a vital part of the residence life team. They encourage their peers to take an active responsibility in caring for our unique community. As students themselves, they know the nature of our campus community, and are therefore uniquely positioned to be an encouraging and effective source of peer support for campus life.
