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.

It absoute worth to spend a few hours to visit this well established university campus. Unique constructions of old and new buildings locate orderly. You can find reading atmosphere all around inside the campus. Scenery outside the campus are beautiful especially with snow. I am sure you will have a good time if you can find a graduate of this...

The campus is quite well maintained. Many of the older building are unique in design, and the natural environment is quite beautiful. I would guess there are over 40 different tree species on campus many from around the world There are food courts and even upscale places to eat. I believe if you have a couple of free hours go...

The University is located in a huge piece of land in the South side part of the city. One of the nicest University of Canada. I disliked that is located to close of 82 Avenue South, which is one of the worst areas in Edmonton, due to the umbers of bars and night club. Crime is high in that area.... More
