Thank you for visiting us and considering us to be a part of your educational journey. Ayamdigut (Ay-am-da-goot) campus is located in Whitehorse (“Kwanlin” in Southern Tutchone) and rests on the traditional and current territories of Kwanlin Dün First Nation and Ta’an Kwäch’än Council. Kwanlin Dün and Ta’an Kwäch’än elders, knowledge keepers and land care takers have nourished and preserved these lands since time immemorial. We acknowledge and honour the lands on which their ancestors persevered, we live and learn, and future generations will one day grow. Surrounded by 97 hectares of undeveloped land, our community is privileged with backyard access to wildlife, vast forests, wetlands, creeks, and an abundance of trails – the perfect outdoor classroom.
We strive to provide a campus experience where students can nurture and strengthen their connections to the land, the community and themselves, leaving with greater knowledge, understanding and appreciation of all three.
Living in student housing is a unique experience and one which offers a safe place where students can learn outside the classroom and connect with peers in fun and engaging ways. We are a diverse, yet close-knit community. Campus Housing staff with the Student Success team and fellow occupants all work towards a collective goal of a culturally safe and relevant environment where every student is celebrated.
All buildings have secured entrances and our Safety & Security team are on campus and available to occupants 24/7. Call or text with questions, safety concerns, lockouts, or safe walk requests. Occupants can keep up-to-date with campus safety matters by downloading the YukonU app.
Perched atop a plateau surrounded by flourishing crocuses, berry bushes and big spruce trees, YukonU’s campus overlooks the Chu Niikwän (today called “Yukon River”) and Whitehorse’s quaint downtown core. Located right next to the Yukon Arts Centre or just a short jaunt down the hill, occupants can easily enjoy local events and cultural activities. Known as the “Wilderness City”, Whitehorse is great for exploration in its own right or as a starting point for adventure in the great Canadian north.
