A Message from the President

Welcome to the University of Calgary! We are a thriving community of more than 35,000 students, faculty and staff, and we are delighted that you have joined our university family.

As one of Canada’s leading universities, the University of Calgary is proud to offer learning opportunities that enrich all aspects of the student experience — from academic excellence to athletic achievement to community service. Our stunning campus is home to iconic buildings like the Taylor Institute for Teaching and Learning, the Canadian Natural Resources Limited Engineering Complex, the Taylor Family Digital Library and the award-winning Energy, Environment, Experiential Learning (EEEL) building. We also have four satellite campuses that expand the UCalgary student experience: Downtown, Foothills, Spy Hill and the University of Calgary in Qatar.

Our university is dedicated to providing all students with an engaging learning environment and a supportive campus culture — we are a family that nurtures diversity, inclusion and respect. At the start of the year, we encourage all students to take part in this dynamic campus. Join us at Orientation Week, attend our Kickoff event, explore the endless variety of student clubs, and learn about how you can make a difference through everything from the annual United Way Campaign to the Campus Mental Health Strategy.

You are here to begin a journey of personal growth, expanding your knowledge and skills through new ideas, experiences and relationships. Together, our university community is here to help each step along the way. We are committed to supporting your success through world-class teaching, learning and research.

Your journey at UCalgary begins now, and we can’t wait to get started.
