ways to visit
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 Inviso, you'll join high school seniors and transfer students for a weekend to investigate The King's College, New York City.
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 also meet with a faculty member and/or Financial Aid representative.
During a Shadow Visit, you will have the opportunity to: Experience King's first hand, just like the students already attending. With your student ambassador, you'll go to classes; stay as a guest for two nights in King's apartments; experience New York City; learn where students shop, eat, and hang out.
We will work with you to accommodate the day you are able to visit. If you would like to schedule a shadow visit, please contact the visit coordinator at 212-659-3610 or VisitCoordinator@tkc.edu.
(Please schedule Shadow Visits at least 2 weeks in advance. We are unable to guarantee accommodation any sooner than that.)

getting around manhattan
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 $35 (including a 15% tip).
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.
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.
PATH Trains are available from New Jersey into Manhattan. Use the Christopher Street stop if you are coming directly to our 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.
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.
