Each Residence Bay and Floor has a live-in don who is responsible for supporting approximately 25-35 students. The dons organize social and educational Residence events and receive special training to provide support, mentorship, and initial crisis response for students.
The University also employs a group of upper-year students known as Patrol, who conduct rounds of the residence after hours. They encourage students to uphold community standards and promote a safe and supportive environment through peer mentorship. Professional security also monitors the campus after regular business hours and on weekends.
The Assistant Dean of Residence Life oversees residence life, including supervision of the don team, programming and support for students living at King’s, and is available to residence students for help and support. The Assistant Dean provides general guidance and mentorship to the students living in residence and can refer students to a whole variety of professional supports, such as academic advising or health and counseling services. The Assistant Dean lives on campus and has an office located in Alex Hall.
The Assistant Dean of Housing & Ancillary Services oversees housing operations, including the residence application process and room assignments. The Assistant Dean also supports the management of Student Patrol, and Front Desk staff and works with the service providers to Residence, such as dining services, custodial services, and security. One of the Assistant Deans or Dean of Students (or delegate) is on-call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
