Life at UAlberta

Off-Campus Housing

downtown buildingsLiving off-campus is another convenient option for UAlberta students.

The Main Campus and Campus Saint-Jean are located centrally in Edmonton and near the trendy neighbourhood of Old Strathcona, home to great restaurants, shops, and entertainment. Many UAlberta students choose to live in one of the surrounding neighbourhoods in this area, which offers excellent bus access and walking distance to the campuses.

UAlberta has two subway stations on the main campus, which also makes it convenient for students to live in other areas of Edmonton. For example, the subway ride from downtown Edmonton takes only five minutes.

Be sure to start looking for accommodation early!
