Getting around

The North Saskatchewan river valley surrounds North Campus, and its commuter trails make it ideal for walking or cycling to school. Otherwise, it is well serviced by both public bus and Light Rail Transit (LRT). 

From North Campus you can walk to Whyte Avenue — abundant with cafes, boutiques, year-round indoor farmers' market, and lively nightlife.

North Campus is connected via Light Rail Transit (LRT) to the downtown core, the provincial Legislature grounds, and the arts and ice districts. Just a five-minute train ride away you can also reach South Campus — home to many of our sports teams and athletics facilities. 

Other Edmonton landmarks, such as West Edmonton Mall, are just a short bus ride away. Find your way on public transit »
