Wireless Network

The Library is a wireless environment and the network is accessible with a Dal/King’s NetID.

Network Name: Dal-WPA2
Username: NetID with Capital Letters (eg. AA123456)
Password: Your NetID Password

Visiting students, faculty and staff from other institutions can log into the eduroam network if they have access through their institutions using the same username and passwords as they would use at their own campus.

For Community Borrowers without institutional access, the WiFi isn't available on personal devices, but the laptops in the Reading Room are connected to the network and available for use.

King's faculty and staff can request guest accounts for visitors; learn how by logging into the ITS Sharepoint. Please note that there are connection issues that mean guests cannot connect to the Wi-Fi with Chromebooks.

For help accessing the wireless network, please contact any of the IT Help Desks at Dalhousie University.

Lockers

Lockers are available for rental in the Library on a per-term basis. Locks are supplied.

Due to limited availability, these are only available to current University of King's College students, faculty, and staff. ID will be needed for registration.

Locker fee is $5.00 per term (Summer, Fall, or Winter) plus a $5.00 deposit. For this, it is cash only.

Group Study Room

When not reserved for consultations, the Rare Book Consulting Room is available to King's students, faculty and staff as a Group Study Room during the Library's open hours.

Located to the right of the Circulation desk, the Group Study room is available on a first-come-first-served basis for groups of 2-6 people for a maximum of two 2-hour sessions per day.

For larger groups or for studies that require more than whispered discussion, please see the group study rooms available at the Wallace McCain Learning Commons.

To reserve this room in advance for the consultation of Rare Books, Archival, or Special Collections materials, please email archives@ukings.ca.

Committee Room

The Committee Room is available for booking only by current King's students, faculty and staff for meetings.

Located at the end of the right-hand hall next to the Circulation desk, the Committee Room is only available by advanced booking for groups of up to 15 people. The room has use of both a chalkboard and a projector.

Those booking the room are responsible for ensuring their guests have Wi-Fi access if needed. Instructions on creating guest accounts are found through the Dal IT Department (this service is provided only to faculty and staff). Please note that there are service-wide connection issues that mean guests cannot connect to the Wi-Fi with Chromebooks.

Committee Room Policies:

  • There is no food or drink allowed in the Library, including the Committee Room. (Water bottles and reusable mugs with sealed lids are permitted.)
  • If there is no appearance of those who booked the room 15 minutes after the scheduled arrival time, the rest of their booked time will be considered forfeit.
  • Because use of the space is highly requested, repeated unused bookings may result in loss of access to this service. 

To book the room, please email library@ukings.ca.

If the Committee Room doesn't suit your needs or is unavailable at your required time, please log in to the Dalhousie Campus Bookings page to see what other spaces are available to you.

Washrooms and Water Fountain

A gender-neutral, accessible washroom and gendered washrooms can be found downstairs, at the front of the building just beyond the study rooms and lockers.

The water fountain is also a water bottle refill station and can be found in the same hallway.

Elevator

The elevator is directly across from the front doors, just past the Circulation desk.

It is available to everyone, please do not hesitate to use it at any time.

Computers

There are Chromebooks available for use in the Reading Room on the ground floor.

The patron is responsible for signing out of all personal accounts when finished.
