Your Neighbourhood

Students

When you live in MacEwan Residence, you are steps away from classes, the university library, labs, faculty and advisor offices, the sport and wellness centre and so much more.

Wander off campus and you’ll find grocery stores, restaurants, shopping centres and boutique shops, not to mention downtown Edmonton’s arts, culture and music scene. Skate at the downtown community arena, take in the exhibits at the Royal Alberta Museum, walk or bike to the river valley trails. Your new neighbourhood has it all. 

 



 

Living in residence saves me gas and the trouble of driving 45–60 minutes to class every day. It’s close to the gym so I actually go, and it gives me more time to study and sleep.
