Belgravia is a residential neighbourhood located in the City of Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. It is located southwest of the University of Alberta main campus. Named after the Belgravia area of 19th century London, the neighbourhood was once the southern terminus of the Edmonton Radial Railway. The McKernan-Belgravia LRT station is located adjacent to the neighbourhood at the northwest corner of 114 Street and 76 Avenue in neighbouring McKernan.

To the west, Belgravia overlooks the North Saskatchewan River valley. The southern boundary is Belgravia Road, and the southwest portion of the neighbourhood overlooks Fox Drive. The north boundary between Saskatchewan Drive and 118 Street is University Avenue. From 118 Street, the neighbourhood boundary zigzags in a southeast direction from the intersection of University Avenue and 115A Street to the intersection of 114 Street and 76 Avenue.

Surrounding neighbourhoods are Windsor Park to the north, the University of Alberta to the northeast, McKernan to the east, Parkallen to the southeast, and the Neil Crawford Centre and University of Alberta Farm to the south. Grandview Heights is located to the southwest beyond Fox Drive.[7]
