On March 25, 1954, Bishop Cody chaired a meeting at the Hotel London and announced that the Diocese of London would establish an arts college, called Christ the King College, which was to be affiliated with Western. The name changed in 1966 to King’s College and again, in 2004, to King’s University College.

King’s started as a small men’s college with 46 students and expanded over its 56-year history.

Today, King's University College is the Catholic co-educational university college affiliated with The University of Western Ontario (Western). Recognized as an internationally renowned centre of teaching excellence, it is known for its programs in Arts, Social Science, Childhood and Social Institutions, Management and Organizational Studies, Social Justice and Peace Studies, and Social Work.

King’s affiliation with Western affords it the benefits of a large-scale university within a small academic community setting. In a recent alumni survey, the top reason for attending King’s was the class size: the average first-year class has 50 to 60 students.

Sponsored by the Roman Catholic Diocese of London, King’s welcomes students of all faiths and traditions. The goal is to provide arts and social sciences education that will contribute to an informed, active citizenship. It also offers students the option to pursue religious studies such as World Religions or Catholic Studies, and engage in an education which focuses on the spirit and body, as well as the mind.
