Attending a university with 50,000 students can be daunting for anyone, especially from regional and rural districts. College life is about community. It’s about meeting new friends for life, not just fellow King’s students, the first week you arrive. There are numerous opportunities to meet men and women through a wide variety of organised social events or formal events held at King’s.
Throughout the year there are numerous events held and King’s maintains a busy social calendar. Formal events include the Annual King’s College Ball, Enrolment Dinner, Williams Dinner, Commemoration Dinner, the King’s Dinner, and Valedictory Dinner. Regular informal gatherings include events such as Beers, Bubbles and Burgers on the Terrace at the beginning of each semester and 2nd Year Drinks on the Deck. Two large gatherings are held annually – the King’s ‘At Home’ and ‘Conclusion’.
There are also regular social gatherings arranged with the other residential colleges throughout Orientation Week and almost every Thursday throughout the year.
