King's University College provides on-campus housing for approximately 360 students. Living in residence puts you next door to all the facilities at King's, including food services, the library, your classes, and bus service to Western and the City of London.

Double rooms are the standard accommodation for first year students. Students with special considerations may submit a Single Room Request form for consideration.  This form can be downloaded from the Online Residence Application site. 

King's is very pleased to have students from around the world living in residence. Typically,  30% of our residents are international students. We are proud of our multicultural residence community and we encourage residents to embrace the opportunities for cross-cultural learning this community offers.
