Live where your life is. Get more out of your student experience when you live on campus—more time to snooze your alarm, work on assignments and hang out with friends. Your safe, comfortable, home away from home is just steps away from university resources like the library, fitness centre, health clinic and academic advisors. When you make MacEwan Residence your home, you join a fun, friendly and vibrant community. From game nights to study sessions, there are plenty of ways to connect with fellow students and get involved. Find out more about residence here.

Student-For-A-Day
High school students can see what it’s like to be a university student! Many programs offer student for a day activities, ranging from lectures and labs to master classes. We offer student for a day opportunities in the fall and winter each year. Visit our website here for details.

New Student Orientation
At MacEwan’s New Student Orientation—held in the fall and the winter each year—you learn about the practical, the academic and the social sides of campus life. You also begin to build a network of familiar faces—and we all know how important that can be when you’re starting something new. At the orientation, a crew of friendly MacEwan staff and students will answer your questions and help you get ready for those exciting first days on campus. Find out more here.
