Green and Gold Getaway

Green & Gold Getaway

You've never seen the U of A like this before.

It's time to get away and experience a Top 5 university in Canada. Your adventure will include transportation, accommodation, and a whirlwind weekend of exciting events.

Join us in Alberta's capital city and discover our breathtaking North Campus, nestled in Edmonton's lush river valley and just steps away from the iconic Whyte Avenue district.

You'll have the chance to stay in residence, check out state-of-the-art facilities, learn about our 200+ programs, uncover hidden gems on campus, and experience UAlberta student life! You'll also meet other amazing students -perhaps some future Golden Bears and Pandas - from all across Alberta.

Don't miss your chance to get away to the U of A! Only 20 spots are available on this unique experience.
