Campus Location

The University of Calgary is based in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, with four campuses in the Calgary area and a fifth in Doha, Qatar. Located in Calgary’s northwest quadrant, the campus occupies more than 200 hectares — an area larger than the city’s downtown. UCalgary’s Foothills Campus got its start in 1975, with the opening of the Health Sciences Building, built adjacent to the new Foothills Hospital. The University of Calgary’s downtown location is a unique intellectual and corporate hub that offers select graduate level and executive educational programming. Initiated in the early 1970s in support of an animal farm program for what was then the Faculty of Medicine, UCalgary’s Agricultural Research Centre was established on more than 500 acres in northwest Calgary. UCalgary opened its first overseas branch campus in Doha, Qatar in 2007.
