Why choose Mount Royal?
Nearly 100 years of history. Not as much as the Rockies, but we’re working on it. Mount Royal’s clean, bright, big sky campus is tucked quietly into the southwest of Calgary, Alberta. The Rocky Mountains line the horizon and the modern campus buildings are all steps from each other. With on-site bus service, it’s a short ride or walk to shopping, theatres, the Farmer’s Market, and the night life of 17th Avenue, making Mount Royal close to what you need and things you want.
