U of L's Calgary campus leaves SAIT location

Members of the University of Lethbridge Calgary Campus recently capped off a very positive 15-year relationship with SAIT Polytechnic by establishing a new transfer scholarship.

The scholarship program is for graduates from SAIT who choose the U of L, and will be made available to transfer students registering at the U of L in the Fall 2011 semester.

The U of L is relocating its offices to a downtown Calgary location in partnership with Bow Valley College beginning in January 2011. Program growth spurred the move, both at SAIT and the
U of L.

"To best serve our growing number of students – from SAIT and elsewhere in Calgary – the
U of L decided that moving was a viable option," says Lorne Williams, director of the U of L's Calgary campus.

"In turn, this allows SAIT to expand its on-campus space to serve its students. We've had an excellent relationship over the past 15 years, and it will continue, but in a different location."

The University of Lethbridge Calgary Campus was established in 1996 to meet the changing needs of a working student population who wanted classes during evenings and weekends. What started as a small satellite campus for the Faculty of Management, now offers courses across several disciplines. Close to 700 students were registered in classes this semester.

The Calgary campus office is moving to Rocky Mountain Plaza (Suite 1100, Rocky Mountain Plaza, 615 Macleod Trail SE, T2G 4T8), effective Dec. 20. Starting in January, all classes will be held at Bow Valley College.
