Student citizenship


Living at King’s Residences is also an opportunity for students to become responsible citizens. Below you will find the Student Charter outlining our expectations to you and what you can expect from us in return, as well as the Residents’ Discipline process for when such standards or terms and conditions of your accommodation are breached. 

Residents Discipline Process

Please click here to see the Residents Discipline Policy.

The purpose of the resident discipline process at King’s Residences is to promote and maintain a healthy community where shared values, expectations and behavioural standards are embraced.

The goals of our residents discipline process are to:

  1. Provide residents with a fair and just system in response to alleged violation;
  2. Have residents maturely accept responsibility for their actions; and,
  3. Inform residents of required standards and behaviours when making future choices.

While the residents discipline process is centred around citizenship, sanctions may be imposed upon students found responsible for violation of standards including, but not limited to, community service, workshops, room/residence change, reimbursements, termination of Accommodation Licence Agreement and/or referral to the university’s Student Conduct Office.

Community Living

Living in a flatshare will provide you with opportunities to develop interpersonally and to learn about yourself and others. At times it can be extremely frustrating but for the most part it will be one of the best parts of your student experience at King’s.

By sharing your living space with someone that was allocated just as randomly to that flat as yourself will push and develop you in ways you may not anticipate. RA’s s kitchen talks are excellent ice breakers but also can be the perfect forum to get help mediating conflicts that may arise.

Living with another 4-10 people challenges your problem-solving skills, tests your patience and resilience but it is also a great way to develop second-to-none negotiation skills.

Conflict Resolution

If you need help resolving a conflict between you and your flatmate, please speak to your RA, one of the Residences Welfare Leads or the Residence Manager and they will guide you through the process.
