UAlberta strives to create the best possible learning, research and social environment for students, faculty and staff. To meet this goal, the university is constantly developing and renewing its buildings and grounds.


The Office of the University Architect plays a central role in developing and renewing UAlberta’s space. We are responsible for planning and programming university space and we develop campus plans for university facilities. We design projects that will enhance the campus experience.
