The University of Alberta campus is located on the south bank of the North Saskatchewan river in the heart of Edmonton, the dynamic capital city of Alberta. At 7,400 hectares, Edmonton's North Saskatchewan river valley is the largest stretch of urban parkland in North America.
The greater Edmonton area is home to over 1,000,000 people. People living in Edmonton and students studying at the U of A are very active in the visual arts, theatre, sports, music, and community services.
Yes, it gets cold here in the winter, but there are lots of activities and events going on in the sunshine-filled winter, inside and outside! The U of A campus is one of the best places to be in Edmonton, to watch the spring flowers bloom and the leaves change colours in the fall. Edmonton is known as "Festival City" and the summers in Edmonton provide people with endless entertainment.
