University of Regina
The University of Regina’s main campus and historic original College Avenue campus, covering 930 acres, provide an attractive study and work environment for our students, faculty and staff.
The University is home to 10 faculties and 25 academic departments which have established reputations for excellence and innovative programs leading to bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral degrees. In the Fall 2012, a total of 13,120 full-time and part-time undergraduate and graduate students enrolled at the University, including our three federated colleges: Campion College, First Nations University of Canada, and Luther College.
The University employs, together with the federated colleges, approximately 4,550 people. As well, 970 additional full-time jobs in other organizations in Saskatchewan, as well as another 570 outside of the province, are a result from spending by the University, its students and visitors.
Both the main campus and College Avenue campus are located in Wascana Centre, one of the largest urban parks in North America and the first in Canada to be created by a tri-level government/education partnership.
In the 2010-11 fiscal year the University’s operating expenditures were $152 million. The University also received nearly $24 million in research funding. Including capital and other spending, total expenditures were $230 million.

We have a proud history of excellence in teaching, research and continual commitment to our community. More than one hundred years of excellence in education has created a university devoted to making a difference.
The University of Regina has its roots in Regina College, a small residential high school established by the Methodist church in 1911. It 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.
University of Regina alumni – now numbering almost 62,000 – contribute to and build our society in Saskatchewan and in Canada, and are our ambassadors to the world. Our history, our accomplishments, our growth as a university stem from our commitment to working together for the good of our community, from local to global.
The University offers specialized programs in a number of areas including journalism, social work, media production and studies, actuarial science, petroleum engineering, fine arts, software systems, education, police studies, health studies, public policy, business administration, and many others. We are proud that our undergraduate Petroleum Systems Engineering Program is one of the largest in North America.
In the fall 2011, the University began accepting students into the Saskatchewan Collaborative Bachelor of Science in Nursing Program. This program is offered collaboratively by faculty from the University of Regina and the Saskatchewan Institute of Applied Science and Technology (SIAST). University programs – like the nursing program – have grown in response to the needs of the province; the balance of scholarship, research and public service is attracting students and international attention. We are proud that we were the first Canadian university to offer a Bachelor of Arts in Police Studies. The program has resulted in important partnerships with police services in the province and beyond.
We are also proud of the depth we have developed in the critical area of experiential learning. Ours was the first university in Western Canada to offer a co-operative education program and our graduates leave our campus prepared to succeed in the world. The Co-operative Education & Internships Program is available in arts, business administration, engineering and science (computer science, physics, chemistry and biochemistry, and mathematics and statistics including actuarial science internships). In addition to our traditional co-operative programs we offer a wide variety of internship opportunities.
The confidence we feel in our students and their success is expressed through the UR Guarantee Program. This offering provides students with access to critical academic, leadership and service opportunities throughout their undergraduate study. Once a student successfully completes the UR Guarantee Program, s/he should possess the skills and knowledge necessary to start his or her career within six months of graduation. If the student is not successful, the University will pay for one year’s worth (30 credits) of additional undergraduate tuition and course fees. Other examples of program innovation and excellence include:
