University of Regina


The University of Regina—with campuses located in Regina and Saskatoon on Treaty 4 and Treaty 6 territories, the ancestral lands of the Cree, Saulteaux, Dakota, Nakoda, and Lakota nations and the homeland of the Métis—is a comprehensive, mid-sized university that 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. 

In 2019, the University experienced 11 consecutive years of enrolment growth and the largest enrolment increase in 37 years. The student body in Fall 2019 was 16,501 full-time and part-time students – a record number, registered in 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). The Colleges bring excellence and diversity to the educational experience they offer. U of Regina offers more than 120 undergraduate programs and 78 graduate programs, including many specialized programs such as police studies and public policy.

In 2017, the University of Regina was ranked in the Top 200 Best Young Universities in the world by Times Higher Education, building on their established reputation for excellence and innovative programs that lead to undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral degrees. Tuition remains below the national average and the University ranks second nationally among comprehensive universities in the level of student financial support – scholarships, awards, and bursaries – available as a percentage of tuition.


In Regina, the main campus and historic College Avenue campus are located on 239 acres and provide an attractive study and work environment for our students, faculty and staff. Both Regina campuses are located in Wascana Centre, one of the largest urban parks in North America.
