Boarding UAlberta


Attention all free thinkers, risk takers, and ambitious wanderers — this is your boarding call, and a visit to the University of Alberta is just the ticket!

Fasten your seatbelts and get ready to take flight to a Top 5 university in Canada. Your ticket will include flights, accommodations, and a whirlwind weekend of exciting events. 

You’ll land in Alberta’s capital city, Edmonton — Canada’s largest, northernmost metropolis, also known as Festival City. Here you’ll discover our breathtaking North Campus, nestled in Edmonton’s lush river valley and just steps away from the iconic Whyte Avenue district. 

You and your fellow passengers will stay on campus, check out state-of-the-art facilities, learn about our 200+ programs, experience UAlberta student life, and meet other amazing students just like you from all across Canada. We’ll also show you around our beautiful city!
