The year 2013 will mark the University of Windsor's 50th anniversary as a public institution, but the story of our university actually began with its founding in September of 1857, when the first students arrived to study at its predecessor, Assumption College.
As a mid-size university supporting 16,000 students, UWindsor provides a broad range of academic opportunities. As an undergraduate or graduate student, you can choose from over 120 majors and minors and 55 master's and doctoral degrees in subjects like Engineering, Forensics and Business.
At the heart of all of our programs is our exceptional faculty, men and women who are leading scholars in their fields and dedicated mentors in the classroom.
