Community Vision

To create a complete, vibrant and sustainable community that enhances the university experience while harmonizing with surrounding neighbourhoods.

We’ve developed a vision built on creating connections. U/D is a community that will bring Calgarians together to interact, build life-long memories and relationships. Focused on being feet first with thoughtfully designed pathway systems and green spaces that draw residents outside by foot or bike. With sustainable development at it’s core we are proud to be setting a standard for what environmentally sustainable communities look like. U/D is proud to be certified as a LEED ND Platinum community. The first in Alberta and largest in Canada to date.


If you’re interested in partnering with a collaborative, growing organization, connect with us. We are curating our retail main street where there will be availability for both retail and office tenants. Opportunities also exist for builders of residential and office projects and these sites may be advertised through a Request for Proposals process.

Come Home to U/D

Calgarians are ready for something new: to embrace the change that’s coming – to grow up, instead of out. University District is one of the city’s most visionary and ambitious projects that is raising the bar on the everyday, the ordinary and what’s expected from community living. It’s offering everything you want from a close knit neighbourhood with a distinct inner city, urban vibe. And when it comes to finding a place to call yours – it’s the urban feeling you’ve dreamed of coming home to… whatever that looks like for you.
