Formal Meal is back! On Wednesday, October 19, residence and day students are warmly invited to take part in this cherished King’s tradition.

All residence students can attend by picking up tickets from the front desk of Prince Hall during operating hours starting on Monday, October 17 and before 2 p.m. on Wednesday, October 19.

A limited number of day students can attend by emailing or sending a DM to @daystudentssociety on Instagram by 12 p.m. on Tuesday, October 18.

We encourage students to “come as you are.” Gowns are just one part of the tradition of Formal Meal: you are welcome to dress up if you want, but it is not a necessity. We encourage you to dress in ways that reflect your identity, including your cultural heritage.
