Choosing the right university is a big decision for both students and their families.

The University of Winnipeg is well-known for academic excellence, small class sizes, environmental commitment, campus diversity, Indigenous scholarship, and support of cultural arts. It's also one of the most affordable universities in Canada.

I graduated from The University of Winnipeg in the late '70s. It was and still is a wonderful learning environment. I am very pleased that I now have two daughters that have chosen to attend this university.” - Jim Hatherly, UWinnipeg Parent
