Calgary, Alberta

The University of Calgary is a publicly funded research-intensive university founded in 1966, with 14 faculties offering more than 250 academic programs, and more than 50 research institutes and centres. As one of Canada’s top comprehensive research universities, UCalgary combines the best of university tradition with the city of Calgary’s vibrant energy and diversity. Our main campus occupies a beautiful setting with a view of Alberta’s Rocky Mountains, and covers more than 200 hectares — an area larger than Calgary’s entire downtown. In 2016, UCalgary was ranked as one of the top 200 universities in the world by QS World University Rankings and Times Higher Education World University Rankings.
UCalgary offers students a high-quality educational experience that prepares them for success in life, as well as research that addresses society’s most persistent challenges. Our creation and transfer of knowledge contributes every day to our country’s global competitive advantage and makes the world a better place.
We do this in Calgary – Canada’s most enterprising and caring city, where the Western can-do spirit, sense of family, and youthful energy permeate everything we do. We’re pioneers at heart, innovators by necessity and desire, community-builders because it’s in our DNA. We see potential where others balk at challenge and we know how to cooperate to “git’er done”.
