Graduate Residence

Students in Graduate Residence are focused, mature and appreciate being a part of a neighbourhood. They like independence, but also the convenience of a furnished suite close to campus!

Residents take advantage of tailored support for their studies including an on-site faculty member and thesis defense preparation sessions. They care about their neighbours and work together to nurture a community spirit.

Graduate Residence consists of four beautiful buildings: Rockcress, Stonecrop, Juniper and Speedwell.

Orientation programs

The best part of residence is the community, and it all starts with orientation.

Eastern Ascent

Eastern Ascent is the Residence Services upper-year student orientation program specifically designed for students living in our East Campus residences. Eastern Ascent was implemented to enable residents to become comfortable in their new living environment, develop peer connections and become better oriented to the Edmonton community and campus.
