UAlberta’s campuses are beautiful, with a mixture of historic and modern architecture. The areas around them are also equally charming, with a lot of unique features.
Below are some of the things you can look forward to in each area around UAlberta’s five campuses.
Garneau Neighbourhood (North Campus)
Hawrelak Park (North Campus)
Hawrelak Park is a 168 acre (or almost 1 square KM) public park just a 10 minute walk from UAlberta’s North Campus and located in the center of the city! With a large lake, walking trails and picnic areas, it’s a great place to spend relaxing free time. In the summer this park hosts multiple festivals and music concerts. In the wintertime it is a great place to try ice skating and this past winter it even had a giant ice castle!
River Valley (North Campus)
The large North Saskatchewan River runs through Edmonton and UAlberta’s North Campus is situated right beside it! This means there are multiple walking trails and beautiful parks right at your doorstep. Students like to ride bicycles in this area, go for nature walks and play sports with friends in the public parks.
Downtown (Enterprise Square Campus)
The area surrounding our South Campus, is a mature neighbourhood with large trees and historic houses. It’s also boasts a large park and river valley trail system just West of the campus. Great for people who love nature and getting active! It has a lot of cafes within walking distance - which makes it a great place to gather with friends.
The French Quarter (Campus Saint-Jean)
UAlberta also has a small campus in Camrose, Alberta called “Augustana Campus” which is an hour from Edmonton. This small town is known for it’s natural beauty and historic town center. Approximately 1,000 students attend Augustana each year.
