  • I was there with my daughter who made High School for one year in Calgary. My goal was to enroll her in the course of psychology. The campus I visited, the main, close to the University of Calgary, is beautiful. Is relatively small compared to some American universities I know, but it's very well distributed, clean and functional. I visited several buildings: biology, Archaeology, engineering, paleontology, among others, with exhibitions of papers presented in conferences around the world. I visited also the residence of students, with two very modern buildings. The medical campus (my profession) is in another location, and has buildings of teaching hospital of general medicine and Pediatrics.

  • My Daughter and Son attended this University. Its been growing so fast with new building and departments. Lots of food places to eat at and wonderful threaters for proformances. 
  • A great university with lots of awesome professors. Of course there are bad profs and bad admins. It is expected when you have such a large organization. Overall, the Geoscience Department has done a good job in balancing teaching with research. I would recommend this school for anyone.
  • Hello.. My name is Baban. I am from iraq . How do I record my name at the University of Calgary??
  • A cute university inside of a cute city. It's a real contemporary university in its architecture but really enjoyable .
  • Worked there for 2 years as a postdoc. Nice place to work very flexible. Wide range of salary for sme position, disappointing for some people. Sometimes technician will get salary more than RA. Quality of research depends on professor. Many crapy professor still is in here, as well as many outstanding professor.
  • poor dinning center, even more pathetic machall, average campus, average professor, not a great choice, but still the best university in Calgary.
