Campus Tours


Let us show you around! A Campus Tour is the best way to discover everything the University of Alberta has to offer.

Prospective students, parents and families, visiting students and professors, and members of the public are all welcome!


What's in a Campus Tour?

All Campus Tours begin with a presentation and Q&A session with one of our advisors, followed by a 60-minute walking tour. 

Advising sessions
When signing up for a tour, select an advising session with the faculty of your choice, or select a general session if you are not sure what you want to study.

Student-led tours
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 will give you an authentic student perspective!

Campus Tours are provided by our Campus Visit Program.
