On-campus Weight Room
With the Campus Centre Redevelopment project in progress, the SAIT Wellness Centre that houses a weight room and cardio machines, will be relocating in the 2022-23 academic year.
The SAIT Trojans Gym and the Wellness Centre (including locker rooms) will remain open until further notice.
Where to Eat
There are many food options on campus, making it easy to fuel up! Our first recommendation is The Odyssey Cafe which will be re-opening in it’s new location in the Senator Burns building (Station Market) in September 2022.
With student-friendly prices, diverse menu, and friendly staff, it’s truly the best on campus.
You can easily get around on the city’s CTrain! The CTrain is the city’s light rail transit system. To learn more, visit: calgarytransit.com/home.html.
Calgary also has multiple outdoor pathways and bikeways! With SAIT being located in downtown Calgary where it’s fairly flat, biking in the summer months can be one of the most enjoyable ways to commute! View a map of all pathways and bikeways.
