Residence Room Assignments

Room Assignments are based on the information you provide in your Residence Application. Whenever possible you will be placed with a roommate who matches your preferences regarding neatness, sleeping patterns, study habits, etc. If you and a friend wish to share a room, please indicate this in your application. Every attempt is made to accommodate location and roommate preferences; however, these cannot be guaranteed.

We invite Canadian students to further enrich their residence experience by sharing a room with a student from another country. Choosing this option is a great way to broaden your world view and learn about another culture – valuable experiences in today’s global community.

Learning about other cultures and perspectives, respecting each other’s differences, and doing your part to enhance the residence experience for all students, are all valuable aspects of the residence community. The interpersonal skills you develop in residence will be skills that serve you well in your life beyond King’s – they are one of the key benefits of the residence experience.

Residence Staff are on hand to assist with any residence issues that may arise.We can provide the resources and information you need to excel at King’s.
