Information for Students

NEXUS

We are pleased to inform students that the Learning Management System (Nexus) is now available.

The way to access the system has not changed. Using a compatible web browser, please visit the Nexus login page at: https://nexus.uwinnipeg.ca/d2l/login 

Please note that until you have reset your WebAdvisor password, you will not be able to access Nexus. For details on how to reset your password, please visit our password update page.

We would like to thank you for your patience as we resolved this issue. We are especially appreciative of the support you provided by updating your passwords. Your cooperation was a critical part of restoring access to Nexus.

Exam schedule

The new exam schedule is now available on the Exam Schedules website.

  • The April 18-April 24 schedule will remain as is to minimize the impact on students and faculty.
  • The April 11-17 initial schedule will be moved to April 25-May 2.
  • Our priority is to minimize impact and timetabling conflict for students and faculty. The Scheduling office will continue to update the information as necessary, so please check the schedule periodically to see if there have been any further changes.
  • Students who cannot attend the exam due to the exam date change should contact their instructor first. They can also follow up with Academic Advising at advising@uwinnipeg.ca regarding a deferred exam appeal.
Spring Term registration

Students who were originally scheduled to register from March 18–22 can resume registering now that WebAdvisor is available.

Students who were originally scheduled to register from March 25–April 2 have been emailed new registration start dates and times and will be able to register shortly.

Registration priority has been maintained despite the pause in access to the registration system.

Open registration begins April 16.
