Live in the heart of the university experience. King’s residence offers more than just a convenient place to stay on campus; it is committed to the values of diversity, respect and academic achievement. Residence is guaranteed to all first year students who receive an early offer of admission and return their residence application by the required deadline. No lotteries — no worries. Residence is provided to approximately 350 students in three different building styles. Living on campus puts you in the heart of the King’s facilities including the dining hall, library, computer labs and your classes. A convenient and free shuttle bus service runs between King’s and the other campuses at Western, allowing for easy access to the academics, athletics and other clubs and activities available to you. Residence parking is limited. Enjoy a diverse and multicultural environment. In the 2011-2012 academic year, approximately 21% of the students living in residence were international. Meet a new friend and have the opportunity to learn about a new culture; you can request to live with an international student on your residence application. Academic programming and support is also a part of residence. Internet access is available in all residence rooms and wireless access is offered in the residence lounges and study rooms. Quiet hours are in place to ensure an environment that will allow for sleep and studying but still allow for fun and engagement. Upper-year students volunteer as Peer Academic Leaders to provide academic support to first year resident students when needed. Additional learning support services and tutoring are available through our Student Services department in the Wemple Building.
The King’s Meal Plan provides a broad and varied choice in menu. It includes dining in the Thames Market (our dining hall in the Wemple Hall), Tim Hortons (in Labatt Hall) as well as with off-campus partners like Pizza Pizza and Swiss Chalet. Meal Plans are required for students living in residence and are available for purchase for students living off campus in a variety of value options (beginning at $50). The Thames Market is a marché style eatery allowing you to choose from an array of healthy and delicious food options.
