Tips for Out of Town Guests

Open House

If you're coming to our Open House from out of town, first let us say welcome to the city and The University of Winnipeg!

We sincerely hope you enjoy your visit and that you find all of the information you are looking for. Please take advantage of our Open House program and the links on this page to get the most out of the day's schedule.


The University of Winnipeg is centrally located in the heart of the city, so we're only steps away from great restaurants, hotels, shopping and many other fun activities. We also have several restaurants and eateries on campus, and you can find a full list of those here: Campus Restaurants

The Open House program contains a campus map to help you find the restaurants while you check out our campus or enjoy a tour.

There are also a number of excellent restaurants in the surrounding area, and you can search for those here: Downtown Restaurants


If you're looking for a hotel, you can find many in the downtown area. Start your search for downtown hotels here.

Some popular downtown hotels include Fairmont Winnipeg, Delta Winnipeg HotelHotel Fort Garry, and a Holiday Inn is right next to the campus.

Our McFeetors Hall Student Residence also has a hostel option: UWinnipeg Downtown Hostel


While Open House will provide a full day of informative interaction, we hope your visit to the city will still allow some time for recreation.

From our National Hockey League team the Winnipeg Jets (the BellMTS Centre is just a short walk from campus), to the Winnipeg Art Gallery (next to campus), the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra and The Forks Market, there are many great entertainment options right in the downtown neighbourhood. Many pubs and restaurants are just steps away, and shopping and cultural activities can be found right next to our campus.
