SAIT/ACAD/Jubilee is a stop on the Northwest Line (Route 201) of the CTrain light rail system in Calgary, Alberta. The station opened on September 7, 1987 as part of the original Northwest line. The station is located on the exclusive LRT right of way in the heart of the SAIT campus, 1.8 km Northwest of the 7 Avenue & 9 Street SW interlocking and has a center-loading platform that has grade-level access at the West end and +15 access at the East end connecting to both SAIT and ACAD. Stairs, an elevator and an escalator connect the platform to the +15. The station's full name is Southern Alberta Institute of Technology/Alberta College of Art and Design/Southern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium. The station serves all of the aforementioned landmarks, and is also located close to the northern periphery of Riley Park. The signage at the station continues to read "SAIT/ACA/Jubilee" as the station was constructed eight years before the Alberta College of Art took on its present name.

As part of Calgary Transit's plan to operate four-car trains by the end of 2014, all three-car platforms are being extended. Construction of the extension for SAIT/ACAD/Jubilee started July 3, 2014 and completed by the end of 2014.[1]
