Old Arts building is a must

Inspiring campus to visit especially on a sunny day. The Old Arts building is a traditional red brick university building and is worth visiting inside out.

I have visited many Universities around the world and can easily say that Ualberta's campus is the best laid out and most beautiful. All staff I encountered were friendly and helpful making my visit much easier.

This is a major university with a world reputation especially for its Arts Faculty. Outstanding research and teaching record. Modern campus, connected with tunnels and walkways for the winter months.

Little did we know when we took our youngsters here to run on the lawns that some day it would be a big part of their lives. Two sons and three degrees later and we miss those days. Visit the various museums, the tropical garden or simply saunter the grounds.

OK, I know universities build up over long periods of time but really a little bit of 'town' planning would really have helped this place. Each building looks like it was planned and situated without any thought to its surroundings or relationship to other buildings. Getting around is brutal. There is no logic to the way it's laid out.

I visited the U of A for a session in the Technology Learning Center. The University has a nice set up with state of the art Macs with labs of different sizes.

Hi. If you are travelling to Edmonton specifically to attend a course and need accommodation, I recommend the Alberta Place Suites. The UofA Faculty of Extention is in this beautiful building that is centrally located, and within pedwalks of major shopping and food outlets. The Facility itself is clean and well-maintained with a security desk and guards.

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.
