Coming to Edmonton

Please note that the testing site is at the University of Alberta, North Campus.


Staying on the U of A campus is possible year round. For people interested in the JLPT held the first weekend in July there are more options as dormitory space is open to visitors, but guest rooms are still available in December. For details, please check out the website.

Getting to the University of Alberta

For participants coming by car, please check out the campus map to figure out your route. Parking information is available here.

For participants coming outside of the Alberta region, it is most convenient to arrive from the Edmonton International Airport. There are several methods of getting to the U of A from the airport.

The Route 747 Bus travels between the airport and Century Park LRT Station. From there, the LRT (subway) can be taken to the U of A or to other stations that may be closer to your chosen accommodation.

By Shuttle Bus:

The most convenient method to get from the Edmonton International Airport to the U of A is the Edmonton Sky Shuttle. Tickets must be purchased in advance and can be booked through online reservation, or by telephone at 780-465-8515.

By Taxi:

An Airport Taxi Service is also available, but the rates are significantly higher than other options.
