Alder House

Located in a scenic neighbourhood on the eastern side of campus, the University of Alberta’s Alder House residence provides on-campus residence housing in a co-ed community. Residents are able to foster relationships with other students and access knowledgeable upper-year students, all while living minutes from campus.
