Residence Recreation

The Residence Recreation Program puts on events for residents on campus at the University of Alberta. Through recreation we strive to introduce the students living in residences to the Campus and Community Recreation and to enhance the sense of community within each residence and with the University of Alberta residence community as a whole.


Lister Pairs

Lister Pairs Events offer residents within Lister the chance to sign up to play sports with a buddy and make new buddies along the way!

Participants register for the event as a pair. On the day of the event they play numerous games, each time on a team with different pairs, playing against a team of different pairs. The goal is for the schedule to mix and match as much possible, to give participants to play with and/or against as many different people as possible.
