An intelligent traveller would be hard put to find a reason to spend a minute on this ugly campus. Buildings have seemingly been thrown down at random with no regard to any visual connection between them. For meals, the campus offers the worst of North American chains; eating there could easily make a visitor sick. Culturally, the place is a... More

I love the Campus. In summer is green and the staff take care of the landscape. In winter as the day is shorter the light in the many trees reflect the joy of studying, working and living as part of U of AB.

Beautiful campus with the great architecture and many parks and benches. There are many buildings connected by an extensive pedway system. There are many coffee shops and fast food restaurants. There are beautiful libraries and great study spaces throughout the campus.

The University of Alberta campus is one of the most beautiful spaces in the City. Take the time to wander around and enjoy the old brick buildings and the mature trees around Quad. Throughout the campus you will find lots of sculpture, some water features beside the Education Building, in front of the Old Arts Building and beside the Administration... More

Nice campus to wander around in the Summer. Flowers are out, the campus isn't crowded. Check out the bookstore for some neat souvenirs.

The University of Alberta is an old university in a trendy area. It offers great courses and is known for their medical field. They offer great student hubs and there are a lot of bars and restaurants close by.

Never been to school here, but Been here a million times, whether doing volunteer work at the Campus/community Radio station CJSR 88.5FM, or have lunch somewhere at the HUB, or just commuting through the Campus to catch the LRT... it's a nice campus at all times of year, most people are friendly. And looking through literature on the school, programs... More

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.
