East Campus Infill Housing Residences at 90th Avenue

Linden HouseLocation: East Campus Village - North Campus

In November 2014, the University of Alberta began work on two multi-unit student residences in East Campus Village on the south side of 90 Avenue, between 110 and 111 Streets. Construction of the residences has been moving forward with a goal to move students in for fall 2015.

The new residences will feature modern, fully furnished rooms, a total of 71 bedroom units, and shared washrooms, kitchens and living spaces. The facades on the new buildings will replicate the form and character of houses in the East Campus Village River District that were removed to make way for new development and will fit right in within the community.

These new residences will provide housing for undergraduate students in living and learning cohorts and will advance the university's goal of providing on-campus housing for up to 25 percent of the full-time student population.

The building is now home to administrative offices and classroom space. The renewal project was initiated by the need to remove and replace the deteriorating wood siding. The renewal project also includes the addition of an elevator to make the facility universally accessible and the repurposing of interior space.
