Students from Alberta:
There are two ways that you can get from Calgary or Edmonton out to SUNIA (located at the Goldeye Centre in Nordegg, AB).
- Take the bus provided by SUNIA from Red Deer to the Goldeye Centre (recommended). This bus leaves for SUNIA from the Greyhound Bus Station (4303 50 Ave, Red Deer).
If you will require a ride to Red Deer please contact our registrar and they will arrange a carpool for you with another participant attending the same week of SUNIA as you.
Bus Information: Please be at the bus station by 4:00pm on Sunday (August 11th for week A, August 18th for week B). The bus will leave the station by approximately 5:00pm. The bus will return to Red Deer on Friday (August 16th for week A, August 23th for week B) at approximately 4:00pm. Please make sure that you arrange a ride from Red Deer to your home.
- You can also choose to have a parent drive you to the Goldeye Centre directly.
If you are able to drive yourself, SUNIA has a parking lot where you may leave your vehicle for the week (although access to your vehicle will be prohibited during the week).
Please arrive at the Goldeye Centre between 6:00 and 6:30pm
Students from elsewhere:
If you are coming from somewhere outside of central Alberta you will need to book a flights to and from Edmonton at your own cost. We recommend that you fly in the Saturday before SUNIA begins and fly out the Saturday after SUNIA ends. As SUNIA runs Sunday to Friday afternoon, this will ensure that you can catch both of your flights with ease. Please contact our Assistant Director, Niki Bains, if you have any questions regarding your flights.
You’ll need somewhere to stay the night before and the night after SUNIA. We will happily arrange a billet for you with the family of a fellow participant attending the same week of SUNIA as you. Please contact our registrar, Melissa Schmidt for assistance in arranging a billet. SUNIA will also arrange carpools for you to and from the bus in Red Deer, AB.
