MacEwan Residence

About Us

MacEwan Residence is a fun, friendly, and modern living experience for students. Our mission is to be a safe, positive space where students can succeed. We believe in creating a supportive, encouraging community that can help our residents see their potential, have fun and build life skills they can carry with them in the future. 

Live where your life is

Our central location in downtown Edmonton places you in the heart of the city. Living on campus means it couldn’t be easier to get to class, and anywhere else you need to go. Along with being near a major hub for public transit, our residence is within walking distance of:

  • Oliver Village - with grocery stores, restaurants and more
  • The Brewery District and City Centre Mall - for all your shopping needs 
  • Edmonton’s downtown arena - new home of the Edmonton Oilers
  • City attractions such as - The Royal Alberta Museum and Art Gallery of Alberta 
  • Downtown events including the 124th Street Market and Edmonton’s Pride Festival 

Residence Life

The best thing about living in residence is the experience of joining a unique community of over 800 other students facing the same experiences and challenges you face every day. Our Residence Life team is committed to helping you thrive – academically, socially and personally.  We’ll help you meet your new neighbours in residence, find your place on campus and connect to the larger MacEwan community.  

Our Residence Life Program offers ongoing opportunities to get involved in a variety of events from fun social gatherings to academic study groups and formal leadership learning sessions. 

Live on your own, without being on your own

We offer a safe, secure living environment where you can be independent, but still have access to support when you need it. Our team of dedicated staff – including Residence Assistants and Coordinators. – are committed to offering programs and services that enhance your student experience. Plus, someone is always on-hand 24/7 to help you with any concerns you have. With 24-hour security, a multi-key access system and a team of live-in staff, MacEwan University’s residence is designed to give you the security you need.
