Lethbridge

Lethbridge is a safe, vibrant community of more than 95,000 people. It's large enough to provide many amenities found in larger centres – upscale shopping, dining and live local entertainment – but small enough to remain a safe, secure place to live.

Set against the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, the location puts you in the heart of a four season playground. Running and hiking trails, parks and nature reserves are all within minutes of our campus while the mountains are just a short two-hour drive away.

For a closer look at Lethbridge and its amenities, visit the City of Lethbridge and Explore Southwest Alberta.

What is a coulee?

You're going to hear this word a lot while in Lethbridge. It refers to a steep-sided, v-shaped valley or ravine. Coulees are distinct formations created by glacial erosion or continued wind and water erosion. They offer many beautiful walking paths and distinct views, and they are home to local wildlife like the whitetail deer.

What is a Chinook?

This is yet another word unique to southern Alberta. A Chinook is a warm west wind that predominates the weather patterns of the region. It is the result of westerly winds from the Pacific Ocean losing moisture over the Rocky Mountains. The winds descend as warm, dry gusts onto the prairies.

Chinook is a Blackfoot word that means "snow eater". With warm wind comes increased temperatures and a Chinook is often a welcome reprieve from the snow and ice of winter.
