Experience life at The King’s College, confronting the challenges and excitement of the world on your doorstep.
Since The King’s College is operating remotely through the end of the semester, in-person visits this spring are cancelled. The Founders Scholarship Competition will take place digitally on Thursday, March 26, and we are currently building a remote visit experience.
Inviso Visit Weekend
We chose New York City as our campus because the ideas and institutions that flourish here shape the entire world. We want you to see it for yourself. Inviso Visit Weekends are open to high school seniors and juniors, as well as college transfers. Inviso (Latin for “the act of visiting”) will include a class visit, campus tour, panels with faculty, alumni, and current students, and a Broadway show.Register

Upcoming Inviso Dates
Out of care for the well-being of our prospective community, all upcoming visits to King’s are canceled. We will be offering digital visiting experiences over the next few weeks. Nothing can completely replace an on-campus visit, but we hope these online resources will serve you and your family as you make your college decision. We still plan to offer summer visits but will communicate more details about those opportunities in the weeks to come.

How to Get Here
As a major metropolitan hub, New York City is incredibly accessible by public transportation as well as bus, plane, and car.
New York City has three major airports: LaGuardia (LGA), Kennedy (JFK), and Newark (EWR). Flying into any of them is easy, and you can get ground transportation from your airport to Manhattan with very little trouble. We recommend that our guests fly into LaGuardia Airport (LGA). Catching a cab from LaGuardia to the Financial District is very simple and costs about $50.
Public transportation from LaGuardia is also an option, but it requires a transfer that can be difficult if you are carrying several bags. Take the M70 Bus from the airport to the
Roosevelt Av/74 St stop in Queens. From there, you can switch to the R train that comes right by campus (Rector Street).
New York City has two main rail stations in midtown: Grand Central Terminal (on the east side) and Penn Station (on the west side).
Metro North is available into Grand Central Terminal.
Long Island Rail Road (LIRR), NJ Transit, and Amtrak Trains are available into Penn Station.
PATH Trains are available from New Jersey into Manhattan. Use the World Trade Center stop if you are coming directly to our campus.
Once your train arrives in New York City, you can use the subway or a cab to reach campus.
There are a number of affordable, convenient bus lines that travel to New York City from around the United States and parts of Canada. These include BoltBus, Megabus and Greyhound.
All Greyhound and New Jersey Transit buses arrive at the Port Authority Bus Terminal in midtown Manhattan. You use the subway or a cab to reach campus.
If you are traveling to NYC for only a day or two, traveling by car is a good option. While parking is limited, parking garages offer discounted rates over the weekend.
Depending on the season, location, and hotel style, prices vary greatly.
