Living in Lethbridge

About Lethbridge

Home to 95,000 people, Lethbridge is a place where ideas grow. We are a campus community. Culturally vibrant with a flourishing arts scene and active social scene. Alberta’s big sky. Stunning scenery (the High Level Bridge and the Oldman River). Four distinct seasons. Spectacular sunrises and glowing sunsets. Look west and you’ll see vast prairies and the peaks of the Rocky Mountains, which are only a short drive away (unbelievable skiing, boarding, biking, hiking and camping opportunities await). Drive anywhere in our city in 20 minutes.

With both a college and a university, Lethbridge is a varsity town. This means there is plenty to do both on campus and off. Listen to a band, go for coffee, watch a movie (we have a theatre — owned and operated by a uLethbridge alumnus — where movies are only $4!), check out festival square or go to a play in Galt Gardens, sing at an open mic or check out a comedy show. There’s truly something for everyone.
