A space of your own at King’s

King’s College prides itself on providing the best residential college facilities – and that includes our bedrooms. Every student lives in a single room, which comes fully furnished with the essentials: a long single bed (minimum), desk, desk lamp, wireless internet connection, wardrobe, and bookcase. Make your room feel like home by bringing your own bed linen, TV, a small fridge and computer – the electricity is free!

It goes without saying that your room is an important part of your life, but you will find that your flat and bathroom are significant meeting places. Getting to know your flat is a unique aspect of College life. Students will often recount that their favourite memories are those when residents opened up their rooms and congregated in the corridors for informal gatherings, laughter and entertainment. It’s often during these times that you develop powerful friendships and life-long memories.

Dining Hall

The Heart of the College

The King’s Dining Hall is the heart of the College community where you’ll never go hungry for food or company. King’s values the opportunity to gather during meal times and discuss academic endeavours, sporting triumphs or simply catch up with fellow students.

Our catering team not only prides itself on providing three outstanding meals per day but on the fact that at King’s you get to serve your own food. In addition, we make sure you don’t go hungry outside of meal times by ensuring the King’s Cafe serves delicious food and barista made coffee throughout the morning and supper is available in the evening. Flexible meal packages are available also.

If you have commitments during lunch time you can make a packed lunch at breakfast and take it with you. For those committed to university sports training, early or late classes or work commitments, late dinners can be pre-ordered and available in the Dining Hall when you return.

At set times each semester we have formal dinners to celebrate King’s achievements or to hear from special guest speakers. These are formal nights giving us all a chance to dress up, listen to insightful speakers, and enjoy an elegant meal.
