The University of Regina has roots in 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.


We offer more than 120 undergraduate programs and 78 graduate programs, including many specialized programs such as police studies and public policy.


The University is home to more than 400 active researchers, including faculty members, graduate and undergraduate students, post-doctoral fellows, and seven Canada Research Chairs. Several institutes, centres, laboratories, and facilities on campus support research collaboration and partnerships focused on our research strengths. Indigenous research is a growing focus as we encourage and support Indigenous ways of knowing. Several centres and institutes reflect this in their projects and partnerships.

Student Life

Campus life

Recent campus growth is built on our history and a commitment to sustainability.

Completed in 2008, our Research and Innovation Centre received national attention from the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada when it was profiled as an example of excellence in functional design in Award, the Magazine of Sustainable Architecture, Construction and Design.

In 2011, the University launched the College Avenue Campus Renewal Project – an ambitious plan to revitalize the architecturally and culturally significant buildings on College Avenue, ensuring a vibrant centre of learning, research and culture remains in the heart of downtown Regina.

Sports facilities

Wellness is a pro-active approach to healthy living and addresses a broad range of health issues.  The University provides a workplace environment which encourages all employees to incorporate health and well-being goals into their daily routines.

Student clubs

    Student life is not just about the classroom. Activities that take place outside of the classroom can be just as important to a student’s education, which is why the Hill School encourages experiential as well as academic learning. There are numerous clubs on campus as well as several events put on each school year. There is a variety of opportunities for our students to get involved with the community at large, and there are a number of experiential opportunities that allow students to apply their skills to real-life situations.


In Canada, there is no national or provincial system of accreditation similar to the system of voluntary accreditation that is used in the United States. However, there are professional organizations that accredit specific degree programs for their professions such as in medicine or engineering. In place of accreditation, Canadian universities are authorized to award degrees via a charter granted by special action of the legislature of the province in which they are located. The University of Regina in Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada was granted such a charter on July 1, 1974 through the passing of the University of Regina Act and is therefore considered to be a fully recognized, degree granting institution.

Overall, it gets the job done. I liked the variety of classes but at the same time there could be so much more. The university needs to focus more on extras for their students, more seminars, guest lectures, excursions.
