Resuming on-campus research: A Phased Approach

On Monday, May 25, we will start the first phase to gradually resume the on-campus research activities that were temporarily paused or moved off campus. See the latest update for researchers to learn more about what this means for U of A research activities.

Spring Convocation 2020

On June 12, the U of A community will come together to celebrate the Spring Class of 2020 in a virtual convocation ceremony that will be hosted online at ualberta.ca. Keep checking the Convocation website for updates. #UAlberta20.

Residences open for Fall 2020

Residence Services is accepting applications for 2020/21 accommodations. All room assignments will be for single rooms, with special options available to those students who may need to self-isolate.  Students, faculty and staff returning to campus from international locations can also inquire about temporary accommodations for self-isolation.

Continuing to work remotely 

A friendly reminder that our campuses remain mostly closed. Only employees who are required to maintain essential on-campus services or approved research are allowed to work on campus. All other employees should continue to work remotely.
