At the University of Calgary you can nurture a lifelong interest, find a new passion, and prepare yourself for emerging career paths. When you’re here, anything and everything is possible!

Enjoy the Outdoors

With an extensive urban trail system and the Rocky Mountains at our doorstep, it’s easy to see why Calgarians spend so much time outdoors. Once you’re here, you’ll want to get out and explore everything our world-class location has to offer.

Engage with Your Community

From helping build a school in Costa Rica, to visiting inner-city Calgary to learn about homelessness, our UCalgaryCares program will introduce you to community leadership and volunteerism. Become a Peer Helper with the university to gain valuable leadership skills and work experience in a field you’re interested in.

Get to Know Your Students’ Union

Cinemania, Faculty Wars, Frostbite and the ever-popular Bermuda Shorts Day are just a few of the events our Students’ Union (SU) hosts every year. The SU also provides funding for many services and activities that enhance student life on campus, including nearly 300 student clubs!

Broadcast Yourself

If you’re an audiophile, consider volunteering with CJSW 90.9 FM, Canada’s largest campus and community radio station. If you’d rather spread the news you can work on The Gauntlet, our student-run newspaper. And if you’re passionate about video broadcasting, our community television station NUTV needs your skills.
