I am a local and I don't think you should be going to a foreign place to visit their University. There are better things you can do.

The old "Tuck Shop" no longer exists, but there is a nice shopping mall on campus. The Rutherford museum on Saskatchewan drive is definitely worth a visit.

Of course I'd give my alma mater a good rating. I can't remember all the museums and attractions here, but if you go on the internet, there's a list of them. They've been renovating and upgrading a lot of the buildings. It's a good walk through here at any time of year. I like coming here when the students are... More

We just want to stay in not costly accommodation and the dorm room was very nice and the only thing is there is no ac and because it is dorm like, we have to share the bathroom with other visitors. Not too bad at all since it is not... More

This campus is amazing. It is large and very beautiful. Sits right on the river valley with great access to biking and running. A nice mixture of new and old architecture.

The place is beautiful, open to visitors but there are some place that are not open all the time, I've been visiting the university for several days now, today we went to the paleontology museum and the mineral museum (they are not actually museums but small displays of collections) and we had a great time, everything is on perfect conditions...

The University of Alberta in Edmonton has two major campuses, the South, where regular subjects seem to be studies, and the North, which seems to be devoted largely to medical, pharmacological and medical-scientific research and training. A huge hospital is there with big medical clinics. The South has more traditional campus views, large lawns and a few traditional buildings, along... More

Well run tournament and good facilities. Very loud with 20+ courts of games and whistles. We played at Saville Centre and there was a sandwich vendor and DQ. Close to LRT transit, only 500 m walk.

The campus is fun to visit and the Golden Bears play great hockey. Visit the HUB or SUB and enjoy a lot of little out of the way places to grab a snack.
