Student Life

It’s all around you.

In King’s living and learning community, ideas take root not only in lecture hall, but also while you’re participating in the vibrant extracurricular life on campus.

Nearly every King’s student participates in a group or society, like the King’s Theatrical Society, an entirely student-run theatre company with the highest per-capita participation of any student society in North America.

Chapel Icon King’s has a chapel community that gives people of any faith or none opportunities to explore religious thought, go on wilderness retreats, and participate community outreach, social justice and volunteerism.

Music note icon The chapel also has two choirs. The chapel choir, under the leadership of Interim Director Garth MacPhee, is for experienced choristers that tour and perform major works in concert, while the King’s Chorus is a fun way for you to learn great music through masterwork concerts.

University of King's College

Since its founding 1789, King’s students have been living and learning in community. King’s campus is designed based on the Oxford-Cambridge model of small colleges. In this ancient model, the College around the quadrangle (the ‘Quad’) is a place where you’ll live and learn together in community — a refuge from a fractured, chaotic world where you have quiet and time for deep study and real friendships that will fuel your future success. ‘Quad life’ is part of our long history and one of our many proud traditions.

Living in Residence College Traditions

“King’s has so many opportunities for extracurricular activities in which to get involved. And the more I got involved and the more work and experience I got the more I wanted and the more I figured out what I wanted to do afterwards.”
