The University of Alberta is establishing itself in Edmonton’s downtown core by opening an expanded space at Enterprise Square.
University staff have worked in the building for years, but recent renovations allow for an additional 500 people – double the occupancy — to work in the space at Jasper Avenue and 103 Street.
Departments including external relations, human resources, shared services, continuing education and research services will occupy the new space.
“The external relations team is thrilled to be working downtown – Enterprise Square is a perfect fit for our team,” Elan MacDonald, the university’s vice-president of external relations, said in a news release issued Tuesday. “I am proud that we can contribute to the revitalization of downtown Edmonton and support the downtown recovery task force.
