1. Set up your student webmail

All new students will receive their own U of R Webmail address. You can access this email account the day after you have registered for courses for the first time.

This is where you will receive all official U of R communications, so be sure to check it often, especially at the beginning of each semester! To access your student webmail account, you will need to find your username and activate your account.

For more information about your U of R student accounts, login information, and passwords, visit the Information Services page on uregina.ca.

2. Register for orientation

The Fall 2021 virtual orientation is the best way to kick-start your first semester! Join U of R faculty and staff, as well as over 1,000 other new students, as you prepare for your first day of classes. This orientation will help you familiarize yourself with campus, get to know your faculty, meet your peers, and more!

Did we mention you can also win some great prizes throughout the event?

You can register for the new student orientation here. There is also an adult learner orientation and a family & supporter orientation.
