Ways to Visit

INVISOLATIN. THE ACT OF VISITING, OR GOING TO SEE A PERSON, PLACE OR THING; A BRIEF STAY OF BUSINESS, FRIENDSHIP, CEREMONY, CURIOSITY, OR THE LIKE, USUALLY LONGER THAN A CALL.

It’s no coincidence that The King’s College chose New York City as our campus. Not just any city, New York is the City — a hub of ideas and institutions that shape the culture of the entire world. Day in and day out, King’s students confront the challenges and realities of the world on our doorstep as well as the fun and excitement.

At an Inviso Visit Weekend, you will experience life at The King’s College, New York City! Inviso Visit Weekends are open to high school seniors and juniors as well as college transfer students.

TOUR KING’S ON YOUR OWN SCHEDULE WITH AN INDIVIDUALIZED VISIT. YOU’LL HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO SEE BIG IDEAS COME TO LIFE IN THE CLASSROOM.

A typical campus visit lasts 4-5 hours. You’ll receive a tour of our space in the Financial District and our student apartments. You’ll also have the opportunity to sit in on a class and meet with an Admissions representative. Seniors or transfer students will also be able to have an entrance interview.

Upon request, guests can meet with a faculty member and/or Financial Aid representative.

Visit Scholarship

Seniors and transfer students who attend a campus visit are eligible for a one-year $1,000 Visit Scholarship for their first year at The King’s College. Students must attend an Inviso Visit Weekend or a personalized visit before July 31st to qualify.

Getting Around Manhattan
Manhattan By Plane

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 M60 Bus from the airport to the Astoria Blvd/Hoyt Ave stop in Astoria. There, you can switch to the N or Q train.

Manhattan By Train

New York City has two main rail stations in Midtown: Grand Central Terminal (on the east side) and Penn Station (on the west side). Each is also served by numerous subway lines. Grand Central is served by Metro-North Railroad, which goes to NYC suburbs in New York and Connecticut. Penn Station is served by the following: Long Island Rail Road, Amtrak, and NJ Transit.

Metro North is available into Grand Central Terminal in midtown.

Long Island Rail Road (LIRR), NJ Transit, and Amtrak Trains are available into Penn Station in Midtown.

PATH Trains are available from New Jersey into Manhattan. Use the Christopher Street stop if you are coming directly to our campus.

Manhattan By Bus

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. Easy access is available via cab or subway to hotels and The King’s College campus.

BoltBus and MegaBus often offer cheaper options than Greyhound and drop off at various street-side locations in Manhattan.

Manhattan By Car

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.

Driving directions to our campus can be found on Google Maps. If you need information about taxis and car services, please click here.
