Rainbow Sidewalk

On Campus Beautification Day, U of R faculty and staff came together to paint a rainbow sidewalk in front of the Riddell Centre. This colourful initiative serves as an important reminder that everyone is welcome here and that our campus is a safe, inclusive environment for all where every individual feels valued and celebrated.

Queen City Pride Parade

Join the University of Regina at this year's Queen City Pride Parade to celebrate and stand in solidarity with the 2SLGBTQIA+ and allied communities. With a remarkable turnout of over 4,000 participants marching last year, let's amplify our impact and paint Regina's streets with vibrant colours! Together, we can create a visible and powerful expression of support for diversity and equality.

About the University of Regina

2024 marks our 50th anniversary as an independent University (although our roots as Regina College date back more than a century!). As we celebrate our past, we work towards a future that is as limitless as the prairie horizon. We support the health and well-being of our 16,700 students and provide them with hands-on learning opportunities to develop career-ready graduates – more than 88,000 alumni enrich communities in Saskatchewan and around the globe. Our research enterprise has grown to include 21 research centres and 12 Canada Research Chairs. Our campuses are on Treaties 4 and 6 - the territories of the nêhiyawak, Anihšināpēk, Dakota, Lakota, and Nakoda peoples, and the homeland of the Michif/Métis nation. We seek to grow our relationships with Indigenous communities to build a more inclusive future.

Let’s go far, together.
