Winter Ascent is the Residence Services winter semester orientation program specifically designed for students living in a UAlberta residence and moving in January, 2019.

Transitioning to university and residence can be tough. Making this transition in January can be tougher.

Winter Ascent was created to provide an opportunity for residents to become comfortable in their new living environment, develop peer connections and become better oriented to the Edmonton community and UAlberta campus. Winter Ascent focuses on providing residents with the chance to explore Edmonton and establish a strong support system in residence prior to the start of Winter Term Classes.

Things To Look Forward To:

From January 4, 2019 to January 6, 2019 residents moving into any of our residences will have the opportunity to take part in many activities that will be sure to have a lasting impact on your residence experience.

These programs will help you navigate your way around your new community this semester, and have some fun doing it!

There will be community building programs, recreational activities, a Day of Service in which students engage and volunteer with the Edmonton community, and educational workshops, all to help start you off on the right foot this semester.

Furnished apartment units may vary, because they have been furnished over time. All units are equipped with a stove/oven and refrigerator/freezer. Each bedroom contains a bedframe/mattress (twin XL) and desk/chair. Storage and living room furniture may also be provided (no TVs).

Unfurnished apartments are equipped with a stove/oven and refrigerator/freezer. You will need to provide your own bedroom, living room and kitchen furniture. If you are in a shared unit, we recommend that you wait until you move in to see if there is furniture/appliances your roommates already have so that you do not bring duplicate items.
