University of Regina

Education, Post-Secondary

The University of Regina (U of R) has campuses located in Regina and Saskatoon on Treaty 4 and Treaty 6 territories. These are the ancestral lands of the Cree, Saulteaux, Dakota, Nakoda, and Lakota nations and the homeland of the Métis.

A comprehensive university, the U of R traces its roots back to the creation of Regina College, a small residential high school established by the Methodist church in 1911. The College grew in size and significance becoming a campus of the University of Saskatchewan and, ultimately, an independent degree granting university – the University of Regina – in 1974.

The U of R has:

  • 10 faculties;
  • 25 academic departments and schools;
  • 18 research centres and institutes; and,
  • three federated colleges: Campion College, First Nations University of Canada, and Luther College.
Categories: Education, Post-Secondary, Business x Finance, Art x Culture, Engineering x Architecture, Human x Social Services, Health Sciences, Law, Science, Tech, Mathematics, Indigenous, International

About U of R

Some programs are also delivered with partners including Saskatchewan Polytechnic, regional colleges, Gabriel Dumont Institute, and Yukon University.

In 2020, the University of Regina recorded its 12th consecutive year of enrolment growth, growing by one per cent to 16,664 full-time and part-time students – a record number. Our tuition rates are on par with the national average and the University is second among comprehensive universities in the level of student financial support – scholarships, awards, and bursaries – available as a percentage of tuition.

In Regina, our main and historic College Avenue campuses are located on 239 acres in Wascana Centre, one of the largest urban parks in North America, providing an attractive study and work environment for our students, faculty and staff. On August 1, 2018, University of Regina campuses became 100 per cent smoke-free as part of our commitment to providing a safe and healthy place in which to study, work, live, and visit.

Admissions Tips

Most of our programs require a minimum of 70% admission average in order to be accepted, but it is always important that students check our admission requirements prior to application. Each of our 10 faculties of study has different required high school classes,  admission requirements, and averages. But not to worry! Students are always welcome to book an enrolment counselling appointment with us to chat about admission requirements. We are here to help! 

Admission Requirements:

When we assess a student’s application for admission, we look to see that they have met the required admission average, courses, and have paid the application fee. For students who are newer to Canada, we also will assess their application for English Language Proficiency requirements.
See here for those requirements:

High School Admission Requirements:

Academic Advisors

Our faculty academic advisors are accessible through a combination of options.
All of our offices offer students the ability to book appointments, but some offices also facilitate daily or weekly drop-in times so that students who have quick questions or need to make quick questions can meet without making a formal appointment.

We also have a central academic advising office that offers daily drop-in times!

Professors set their own office hours, but most offer a block of time each week to meet with students, and/or by appointment.  

UR Unique Facilities

Each area of study often has unique laboratories, libraries, or artist spaces that students get to utilize for their studies.

We have a unique theatre called the Shumiatcher Open Stage (the Shu-Box) that features unique and flexible stage configurations, seating layouts, and wheelchair accessibility.

The Fifth Parallel Gallery is a professional exhibit space that is run by U of R students and showcases current student art! We have incredible artist spaces for all types of creatives! Our clinical nursing labs offer students the opportunities to work on simulators that function as humans do.

The library at First Nations University of Canada, one of our three federated colleges at the U of R, boasts one of the most robust collections of Indigenous content and documents in North America.

How are programs structured?

As with most things at a medium-sized institution with diverse program offerings, this depends on the program a student is pursuing. Students who are studying in areas such as Nursing, Engineering, or Education have a more structured program, meaning that there are fewer options when choosing classes outside of that area of study.

Students who choose to pursue areas such as Science, Arts, or Business experience significant flexibility when picking classes, due to the number of electives available. However, students are always encouraged to work closely with their academic advisors to plan their course schedules and discuss potential flexibility options to add to a program. 

Study Spaces

The U of R has a variety of study spaces on campus for students. Each faculty has dedicated study space for students, in addition to smaller communal areas dotting the hallways.

The U of R also has eight libraries on campus, each with unique study spaces.

At the Archer Library, our largest library on campus, students can also book private group study rooms – or congregate in our two large spaces designed specifically for group projects.

Want a quiet, sunny space to study? Try the upper floors in the Research and Innovation Centre! There are plants, comfy chairs, and huge windows that bring in lots of light.

Accessibility Supports

The Centre for Student Accessibility (CSA) provides services and support to enable students with permanent or temporary disabilities, health conditions, and injuries to approach their students in an equal and effective manner.

By registering with the CSA, students can meet with an accessibility advisor to review documentation, determine appropriate accommodations, assist in accessing funding for accessibility-related supports/services, and more!

We recently built a state-of-the-art Accommodations Test Centre (ATC). The ATC aims to provide a consistent testing environment for students registered with the CSA to ensure students are supported in their academic pursuits. In addition to a combination of private and shared workspaces, text to speech and speech to text software, scribes are also available as needed. 


Campus Life

Living on campus is comfortable, convenient, and fun!

Just think of how nice it would be to roll out of bed, toss on your favourite hoodie, and be in class in 5 minutes. With six different buildings and 1,800 rooms to choose from, we know that there is a perfect room for you!

Whether you select dorm-style or apartment-style housing, all our residents enjoy their own private bedrooms so you can retreat to your own space at the end of the day. 

U of R Housing 

The Student Village at Luther College 

Our lively campus is perfect for social butterflies. But if you are more of a wallflower, don’t despair – our campus is perfect for you too! After all, flowers and butterflies go together like peanut butter and jam.

With nearly 120 student clubs and societies at the U of R, there’s sure to be something that piques your interest.

Student Supports, Scholarships, Bursaries, & Awards

At UR we have the University of Regina Students’ Union – or URSU for short: 

Other Student Supports:

At the U of R, we offer two streams of scholarship opportunities for high school students. Once a student submits an application, we automatically assess them for any Automatic Entrance Scholarships. Then, from mid-Jan to March 15th, students can apply for entrance awards using our Student Awards & Management System (SAMS). Students will continue to utilize this database in order to apply for awards, scholarships, and bursaries while they are a student at the U of R:

Universitaire Francophone – La Cité

The Cité universitaire francophone is not a simple symbol of linguistic and cultural diversity. It is essential for the development of the University of Regina and for the Francophonie that is there and that surrounds it. La Cité is the beating heart of university education in French. It is the result of mutual understanding between the university and the Saskatchewan Francophonie.

La Cité‘s mission is to meet the university educational needs of Francophones in Saskatchewan, regardless of their mother tongue. It stands out for its community involvement, its pedagogical orientation promoting experiential work and its interdisciplinary research approaches. La Cité is a place to think about and experience the Francophonie.

La Cité is therefore proud of its contributions to the development of the Fransaskois community in many ways. Our research center (CRFM) is dedicated to cutting-edge, innovative, daring and comparative interdisciplinary approaches, having as a priority a better understanding of the challenges and advantages of living fully in a minority situation.

La Cité, an accessible and friendly space, remains a cultural engine for all Francophones and Francophiles. Its Rotonde is a unifying symbol where French-speaking culture never ceases to vibrate. Our welcoming spaces are always at your disposal.

Come visit us at La Cité!

Luther College

Luther College at the University of Regina (LCUR) – Who are we?

LCUR is committed to retaining the personal atmosphere, individual attention, and sense of community that only a small university can offer. Informed by a progressive understanding of Christianity, our intimate community, combined with the resources and faculty at   U of R, provide students with unique opportunities in undergraduate education. We specialize in the education of Arts; Science; and Media, Art, and Performance (formerly Fine Arts) and provide the highest quality of teaching and foster outstanding research within the humanities, social sciences, fine arts, and sciences.

To learn more about the LCUR’s faculty, students, and distinguished alumni, read The Luther Story, the College’s twice-yearly alumni and friends magazine or you can view some of our Alumni profiles.

Think about where you want to get started (which isn’t necessarily where you’ll end up and that’s okay). For example, if you want to work in medicine, look for volunteer opportunities and activities that fit that sphere. Not only does this help you to see if you’d like it, but when you participate in your community, you learn more about yourself, and your interests, through dialogue with others.

Think about where you want to get started, or what you want to do next, and take the steps headed in that direction. Remember that you don’t have to figure everything out on your own. Book an Entrance Counselling appointment or ask for help!
