University Heights is located in Calgary’s northwest, adjacent to the south end of the university of Calgary campus. Its development in the early 1960’s coincided with the development of the university campus. Residents of University Heights enjoy close proximity to McMahon Stadium, Burns Stadium, Foothills Athletic Park, Foothills Hospital, and the University of Calgary.  Downtown can also be easily accessed from this area via Crowchild Trail. The community is also adjacent to the U of C endowment lands, which consist of 184 acres of open space. There are two public schools in the community, including Sir William Van Home High School. University Heights will also be the site of the new Alberta Children’s Hospital, scheduled for completion in 2005.

The University Heights community association is quite active. Though they do not have a community centre, the facilitate soccer, baseball, weekly scrub baseball and occasional arts and crafts programs at nearby facilities. University Heights also sponsors special events such as an annual Stampede breakfast, and community dances. Finally, the community association acts as an advocate for residents with regards to the many development proposals that affect the area.
