The Students’ Association provides numerous services such as lockers, faxing, a student food bank, health and dental coverage, transit passes, free legal help, and more. Our office is open Monday to Friday from 8:30 am – 4:30 pm.
Any student, staff, or faculty member can rent a locker at each Red Deer College campus. To rent a locker, we just require photo ID. Lockers are $30.00, and when you return your lock (no later than June 30th), you will receive a $10.00 lock refund.
*While the lockers are monitored, we recommend that you do not leave any valuables behind.
The Students’ Association owns and operates a Used Bookstore from our office. Purchasing from our consignment store is beneficial not only for you because of the reasonable price, but also for the student seller because they receive 80% of the profit. Students selling their books with us get to set their asking prices, and we take care of it from there!
We proudly offer affordable transit to all Red Deer College students. Our semester bus pass saves you $98.00 and is valid from September 1st to December 31st or January 1st to April 30th. We are also a reload station for the City of Red Deer, so we can reload any ticket or monthly cards. More information on transit pricing and routes can be found at the Red Deer Transit website.
In collaboration with the Student Connect Centre, the Students’ Association provides an on-campus Food Bank. Students wanting to access the Food Bank must contact the Student Connect Centre at 403-342-3254 to receive a referral. Monetary and non-perishable food donations are always welcome.
