Group Tours

A group of people participating a campus tour

The U of A continues to closely monitor how COVID-19 is developing in Canada, while important discovery and research on the virus are being done in our labs. For now, our tours remain on hold until further notice.

Counsellors and teachers: build a field trip! We'll work with you to customize your day. From presentations to parking, we have you covered!

What's in a Group Tour?

All Group Tours include a 60-minute walking tour. We'll also work with you to customize your experience to your group's needs.

Your tour of North Campus will be led by UAlberta Ambassadors, who will point out some of the most popular facilities and student spaces on campus. These current UAlberta students provide an authentic student perspective!

Group Tours are available on weekdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. except for Wednesdays which begin at 12:00 p.m.

Please note: we ask that you submit your Group Tour request at least two weeks in advance of the desired visit date in order to ensure that we can accommodate you. Sign up as early as possible in order to get your preferred date!
