  3. Campus Life

You'll feel welcome on University of Regina's lively campus! A typical day living on campus? Wake up in your modern space. Make your way to class within minutes. Later on, study or relax in your residence lounge, and then attend a fun activity or cheer on Rams and Cougars teams. Jump on a bike in the fitness centre, try out a yoga class, go for a swim, visit the art gallery, go to a concert, see a play or enjoy the outdoors – you’ll be in one of the largest urban parks in North America, close to walking, biking and cross-country ski trails in beautiful Wascana Centre.

Life on campus isn't just for fun — it's a place to grow into the person you aspire to be. It's about meeting diverse people, sharing ideas, volunteering and striking the right balance between living and learning. University of Regina's campus is the perfect place for all that: perfect size, fantastic amenities and the personalized support you need to get the most out of quality instruction from our friendly faculty.

Campus safety is our priority, and U of R campus security staff remain available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to help you with any questions or concerns about living on campus. We hope to see you soon on a visit.
