Campus Safety

At King’s we are committed to providing a safe and welcoming learning environment on campus. Here are some resources related to campus safety.

School Closures

Occasionally, King’s will need to close due to inclement weather or for other reasons. If this occurs, we will broadcast this information as widely as possible:

  • An alert will appear on
  • Messages will be sent out on Facebook and Twitter. We encourage you to share/retweet this information.
  • A community email will be sent out.

School closure policies

  • If Dalhousie’s Studley campus is closed due to weather, King’s will also close.
  • If an exam was to be held on the day of a school closure, it will be rescheduled.
  • On school closure days, Prince Hall will observe weekend hours.

Dal Alert and DalSAFE

Dalhousie University offers an integrated messaging system to King’s students thatĀ broadcasts important messages regarding campus hazards ( e.g. spill, fire, accident, etc. ), significant campus closures ( e.g. severe weather, utility outage, etc. ), or other unpredictable events that might affect large groups.

Sign up at Dal Alert to receive text and web alerts.

King’s students can also download the DalSAFE appĀ for quick and easy access to Dalhousie security services and more.

The Occupational Health & Safety Committee

The University of King’s College’s Occupational Health and Safety Policy, as well as the Health and Safety Program, are annually reviewed by the Occupational Health & Safety Committee, which provides recommendations for changes, when appropriate. Among other tasks, the committee also responds to health and safety concerns raised by members of the college, and recommends to the Property, Grounds and Safety Committee alterations to physical facilities or work practices, as it deems necessary or advisable.
