MacEwan Residence

About Us

Our vision is to be a diverse community and the preferred choice for engaged student living. Through an empowered community of respect and collaborative leadership, students will leave with an enriched university experience.

To bring that vision into reality, we provide a connected, academically focused, and safe environment for students and the community through respect, leadership, innovation, professionalism, and empathy.

More Than Just A Place To Live

Located on City Centre Campus, the MacEwan Residence is the University’s only residence building and gives almost 800 students safe, affordable housing and a unique living and learning environment. It’s more than just a place to live. It’s a place to meet other students and get involved in campus activities. It’s a place to learn and excel in a supportive environment. And a place to call home.

Safe. Central. Complete

The building is as central as you can get in Edmonton. It’s located right on City Centre Campus, close to classes and services like the Library and Christenson Family Centre for Sport and Wellness. And, it’s within walking distance to a variety of grocery stores, restaurants, shopping and entertainment - including Edmonton's new arena, Rogers Place. It is also near a major hub for public transit, serving many sites across the city and other MacEwan University campuses.

Residence Life

The best thing about living in residence is the experience of living in a unique community with other students facing the same experiences and challenges you face every day. Residents often say they appreciate how easy it is to meet new people and to develop great friendships that last well beyond their experiences at MacEwan University.

The residence environment provides you the opportunity to become an active member of the university community and to develop a range of personal skills. Our Residence Life program includes everything from social events and fun activities like intramurals and movie nights, to personal growth workshops like study skills and financial planning workshops, to formal leadership opportunities on the Residence Life Staff Team.

Safety and Security

With 24-hour security, a multi-key access system and a team of live-in staff, MacEwan University’s residence is built to give you the security you need. Information and Residence applications are available at
