First year students reside in two facilities: Esseff Hall for women, and Holy Cross Hall for men. The majority of the rooms available are double occupancy, but students can apply for single rooms if they are available. Residence hall rooms come fully furnished, and offer Ethernet internet access and cable tv.
Besides Esseff and Holy Cross, upperclass students have several on-campus housing facilities to choose from. Luksic Hall offers co-ed residence hall living, primarily in single rooms with semi-private bathrooms.Alumni Hall, O'Hara Hall, Flood Hall and John Lane House offer apartment-style living for 3-4 people per apartment. 187 N. Franklin Street is a specialty housing unit whose residents are selected through a special application process in the spring semester.
Many of our residence halls and apartment buildings have 24-hour computer labs, and each building offers laundry services. The common-space lounges in the buildings offer a comfortable place to hang out with friends or a spot to finish homework and study. Each King's student is assigned a campus mailbox, located in their residence hall. All residential students are offered a number of services, including: cable TV, microfridge rentals, and the free linen exchange program.
All of our residential facilities and amenities are detailed further in our Guide to College Housing. The Office of Residence Life offers incoming first year students a variety of resources and support to make the transition to college life easier.
