Take a tour

Four room options are available to AUArts students. Take a tour of each to see which one best suits your needs! Specific may vary, but all options offer a kitchen/dinette, bathroom and private bedroom with lock.

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.
