Media are invited to the University of Regina’s student Move-in Day being held this year on Friday, August 26, 2022. University faculty, staff, and students will be on hand to assist close to 400 students who are expected to move in to U of R housing during the day. In total, more than 850 students are currently anticipated to live in on-campus housing this fall. 

“The University community is excited to help welcome these students to their new home on campus,” said President and Vice-Chancellor Dr. Jeff Keshen. “We are also eagerly anticipating the first day of classes on August 31 and the full return to normal, in-person academic instruction this fall. All of us are looking forward to our campuses once again buzzing with activity from students living in on-campus housing, participating in sports and other activities, and attending the many performances, lectures, and other events that are part of university life.” 

Move-in Day is also the start of Welcome Weekend, which runs from August 26 to August 30 this year. Throughout Welcome Weekend, students will be able to participate in a wide variety of activities including: sessions on finding classes, a beach bonfire party, a bocce tournament, and a concert by the New Montagues.
