All South Campus Programs to Move to City Centre for September 2014

Dear Students and Applicants,

With last week’s announcement of government funding for the new Centre for the Arts and Communications, the final piece is now in place to begin construction of our new building later this summer. Accordingly we are moving ahead with the relocation of all programs from South Campus to City Centre for the fall semester, September 2014.

The relocation of these programs is a significant step in the university’s downtown campus strategy which consolidates all university operations in the city centre. It is our desire to provide all our students with the same level of resources and services. Moving all South Campus operations to City Centre is a major step towards that goal.

Some students in the School of Business will be moving to City Centre for May 1. For everyone else, classes will be held at City Centre starting in September.

Here are some important things to note about this change:

  • South Campus programs will be exactly the same: only the delivery location has changed.
  • City Centre Campus provides greater options including better access to academic programming, technology, facilities, and student services such as career services, graduate school liaison, counselling, financial aid, residence.
  • Being downtown means having greater exposure to business, employment, retail, and other downtown opportunities.

We encourage everyone making the move to take a tour of City Centre Campus and trust that once you become familiar with your new surroundings, that you will find more services and resources than you had previously.

In addition to Student Services, the Students’ Association of MacEwan University (SAMU) is available to help students affected by the move. SAMU staff can also answer questions and help make the transition to City Centre Campus go more smoothly.

In order to keep information about the move easily assessable, we have started a South Campus blog which will be the single source for information regarding the move. Be sure to consult it for the latest in move information. The blog can be found here: MacEwan.ca/southcampusmove.

We recognize that for some students this move will be inconvenient while others may welcome the change. We are confident, however, that you will enjoy the benefits of full access to everything MacEwan University offers.

As always, we appreciate you making MacEwan University your choice for your university education.

Thank you,

Cathryn Heslep
