About University of Regina
A comprehensive university, the U of R can trace its roots back to 1911, and became an independent degree granting university in 1974. The U of R has 10 faculties, 25 academic departments and schools, 10 research centres; and three federated colleges: Campion College, First Nations University of Canada, and Luther College.
In 2021, the University of Regina had over 16,000 full-time and part-time students. Our tuition rates are on par with the national average and the University is among the top comprehensive universities in the level of student financial support – available as a percentage of tuition.
In Regina, our campuses are located within Wascana Park, providing an attractive study and work environment. Both campuses are 100 per cent smoke-free as part of our commitment to providing a safe and healthy place in which to study, work, live, and visit.
Our alumni contribute to and build our society in Saskatchewan and in Canada. Our history, accomplishments, and growth as a university stem from our commitment to working together for the good of our local and global communities.
The University of Regina’s 2020-2025 Strategic Plan, All Our Relations, is the English equivalent of a phrase familiar to most North American First Nations Peoples. Often used to formally acknowledge the interconnectedness of family and all their relations, including those that walk on two feet, those that walk on four feet, those that swim in the great waters, those that fly in the sky and those that crawl on their bellies. Through the strategic plan, the University is committed to five areas of focus and specific goals related to each: Discovery , Truth and Reconciliation , Well-being and Belonging , Environment and Climate Action , and Impact and Identity .
Discovery lays out the key aspects needed to strengthen the academic successes of U of R students, faculty, and staff, as well as create impact within communities in Saskatchewan, Canada, and worldwide. It has three overarching objectives – Excellence in Teaching and Research, Student Success, and Internationalization.
We offer more than 190 undergraduate programs and 80 graduate programs , including many specialized programs such as police studies and public policy.

- U of R also supports inclusion and diversity through programs such as the Colourful Campus House , a residence option specifically for 2SLGBTQIAP+ students. The residence lounge features special ventilation so the space can be used for smudging, ensuring Indigenous students can practice their culture freely and build a sense of belonging.
