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.
