Campus: Facilities, Residence and Location

Taylor University College is located on a 26-acre campus in the southwestern part of Edmonton. Its main educational concentration is on training pastoral and other vocational Christian ministries and preparing those who are called to serve as disciples of Christ in the marketplace and society. Taylor University College performs this ministry within a Baptist and Evangelical background. During the 1960’s, there were many extensions carried out within the campus grounds, and additional buildings, such as two dormitories, an administration building, Services and Storage Building, and the administration building were constructed. On July 1998, the college signed an agreement with the University of Alberta, which is still in existence today.

One of the most popular places on campus is The Schalm Memorial Libray, named after Bernard Schalm. It was built in 1980 to accommodate around 100,000 books. The library is also a part of the NEOS library consortium, which consists of hospital, government, and academic libraries within the central Alberta region. NEOS has an online integrated catalogue that has more than five million records. The College has many activities and services that it offers to its students.
