North Campus (original): Located in the province’s capital of Edmonton, on the edge of the North Saskatchewan River valley, the campus covers about 50 city blocks, with abundant green spaces among its 150 buildings.
South Campus: Much of the university’s agricultural research in areas such as food safety and crop use for food and industrial products takes place at the Edmonton Research Station. A prominent sight on this campus is the Saville Community Sports Centre, a 32,516-square-metre, multi-use recreation centre that is home to 14 varsity athletic teams, several community sports clubs, and the Canadian women’s national basketball team.
Augustana Campus: An hour’s drive from Edmonton in the rural community of Camrose, Augustana Campus offers degree programs in the liberal arts and sciences in an intimate residential learning environment. Specializations include a signature outdoor education program, nationally competitive sport programs, and international study opportunities.
Campus Saint-Jean: “The U of A en français”—is a one-of-a kind gem in the heart of Edmonton’s francophone community a short shuttle ride from the North Campus. A French-language campus, Campus Saint-Jean offers degree programs in arts, commerce, education, engineering (first year), science, nursing, and conservation and environmental sciences, as well as master’s programs in education and arts.
Enterprise Square: Creating a vibrant hub in downtown Edmonton’s historic former Bay Building, Enterprise Square is home to TEC Edmonton, the Faculty of Extension, the Alberta School of Business executive education and family business programs, and various administrative units, including Advancement, Alumni Relations, and University of Alberta International.
Calgary: Though not technically a campus, the U of A’s Calgary Centre houses staff from Augustana Campus, University Relations, Advancement, the faculties of engineering and rehabilitation medicine, and the Alberta School of Business. Its purpose is to engage 20,000-plus Calgary-area alumni, as well as learners, prospective students, donors, and other university supporters.
The Faculty of Education is located on the University of Alberta’s main campus (North Campus), which has faced downtown Edmonton from across the banks of the North Saskatchewan River for a century.
The U of A is minutes from the North Saskatchewan River valley, North America’s largest stretch of urban parkland. Historic Whyte Avenue, with its boutiques and coffee shops, is a short walk from campus, and downtown’s Jasper Avenue, home to high-quality restaurants and nightlife, is a few LRT stops away. Just a few more stations down the line, the Arts District boasts the Winspear Centre of Music and the Citadel Theatre.
The University of Alberta also has a French-language campus, a downtown location, a rural liberal-arts campus, and a South campus.
