Be a King's student for a day! Join us to find out what a day-in-the-life is like for a student at Canada's premier undergraduate university.

King’s is hosting an Open House on Friday, 24 October 2014, 9AM-3PM, for all interested students. Learn everything you need to know about the unique programmes that we offer, find out how to apply, and experience our extraordinary student care. You will meet, socialize, and collaborate with our current students and your fellow prospective students.

Get to know about life at King’s, and enjoy a complimentary lunch in our dining hall. Be engaged by a lecture on witchcraft by Dr. Kathryn Morris, recently named by the Huffington Post as one of the most interesting classes in Canada (reading available here [PDF]). Live a day on our campus, and learn about our specialized programmes, student societies, and groups on campus that are at your fingertips.

We will be offering on-the-spot admissions: come away from King's being a member of Canada's most engaging University, a place for thinking big, and getting involved.

We know you'll love what you see.
