Eastern Ascent is Residence Services upper-year student Orientation program specifically designed for students living in our East Campus residences and runs from August 28 to September 9, 2017.

Eastern Ascent provides residents with the opportunity to develop peer connections and become better oriented to the Edmonton community and UAlberta campus prior to the start of Fall Term Classes.

Eastern Ascent features events to help give you an academic advantage through workshops on time management, applying for research funding and using campus libraries, as well as programs designed to encourage students to connect with their residence community, such as puppy playtime, bonfires in the park and a Day of Service.


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.

Please be advised that roommate assignments will not be provided until your move-in date.
