Snow and Ice Removal

Athabasca Hall in winter

Reducing snow and ice hazards on campus is a top priority for Buildings, Grounds, and Environmental Services. All winter our staff work hard to keep UAlberta's sidewalks, steps, ramps, curb cuts and parking lots clear of snow and ice.

During or after a heavy snowfall, it may take our team hours or days to clear the snow and ice from the entire campus. Under these circumstances, we appreciate your patience.
