Parking & Transportation

Residence Exterior

Walk, bike, bus, drive. Get around campus—and the city—the way that suits you best. No matter how you get from A to B, it’s easy to do when residence is your starting point.


Where to park on move-in day

Parking is available in the west and east sides of Surface Lot S on move-in day. Please select “Move-In” in the parking machine menu to get the special move-in parking rate.


Students who live in residence can pay to park anywhere on campus. You can purchase hourly, daily or monthly passes. Surface Lot S (east/west) is an economical option with direct access to residence. The West parkade is only a few steps away and offers five floors of sheltered parking with electrical outlets for cold weather days. The Allard Hall and Robbins parkades are more expensive, but provide heated, underground options.

All university parking is coordinated by Transportation Services. You can contact them with questions about parking, including parking lot maintenance.

Airport shuttle

MacEwan Residence is a pick-up and drop-off point for Sky Shuttle, a van service that travels to and from Edmonton International Airport. If you want to go to the Edmonton International Airport or if you are returning from the airport and want to be dropped off at residence, book a spot on the Sky Shuttle ahead of time.

Bookings and information

Living in residence has made it easier for me to get to my classes and get through the day without having to worry about the bus or taxi.
