Great Location

Students often say they feel like part of a family when they join the Faculty of Kinesiology. And the hub of this family is the atrium in the Kinesiology B building. It is centrally located, has multi-level seating and it's surrounded by greenery. It is bordered by the Kinesiology advising offices, Kinesiology Students' Society office, the Dean’s office, classrooms, labs and fitness facilities. It is also a short walk to MacEwan Student Centre with food and services. In Kinesiology A building is the popular Brew & Blendz coffee shop, a quiet seating area, the Red and Gold gyms, fitness studios and the aquatic centre. Enjoy exploring your new home.
