Student Residence

Your residence experience is as individual as you are, and we are excited for you to join the AUArts community at SAIT Residence.

AUArts Students @ SAIT Residence

One of the many benefits of AUArts sharing a campus with SAIT, is that all AUArts Students are welcome to live directly on-campus at the SAIT Residence! To ensure you receive the full AUArts experience in residence, we have designated a specific section of East Hall Residence just for AUArts students. This means you will be able to have an AU Arts roommate, plus have full access to the shared Arts Studio in the building.

In addition to your own AUArts community in residence, we will host a specific residence life orientation just for AUArts students at move-in every year, to help you transition into your life on campus!

You are also welcome to live in Begin Tower as well if you prefer, however, there is no designated AUArts community there.

Living off campus

Looking for accommodation off campus? AUArts is on Calgary’s Light Rail Transit system (also called the C-Train), making it a convenient commute from most areas in the city.

Be aware that Calgary is a large city in terms of area, so check Calgary Transit’s Trip Planner for information on travel times from where you’re hoping to live before you commit to a rental agreement.
