The University of Manitoba was established in 1877 to confer degrees on students graduating from its three founding colleges - St. Boniface College, St. John's College, and Manitoba College. The University was the first to be established in western Canada.
There are many program options available to you within our culturally rich and diverse community – whether you know the direction you want to go or are looking to figure out where your passion lies.
Graduate students are leading the way to discoveries that matter to Canadians. Challenge yourself, expand your horizons and continue your education in one of our many graduate programs.
Fueled by curiosity, our researchers are deciphering the building blocks of life, creating profound expressions of culture and discovering innovations that will shape the world of tomorrow. We've been doing this for more than 140 years.
Our Strategic Research Plan serves as a roadmap to champion research excellence. Guiding our efforts through established and emerging research strength areas and themes, our researchers address the most pressing issues facing Canadians as well as global societies.
Career Services assists all University of Manitoba undergraduate and graduate students with career planning and job search questions. Alumni can also receive assistance up to 6 months after graduation. Whether you are undecided about your career direction or looking to plan for success, we can help! We encourage you to start your career planning as early as possible during your degree and to take advantage of experiences that help build the knowledge, skills and attributes that can lead to endless possibilities.

The University of Manitoba has two health clinics that provide the effective, patient-centered, collaborative, multidisciplinary primary care required for the success and well-being of UM students, faculty and staff.
Each year, University of Manitoba classrooms are filled with over 26,000 of the brightest students from across the nation and more than 100 countries worldwide.
They are diligently supported in their efforts by over 5,000 faculty and staff committed to ensuring an outstanding learning experience. With two ever growing campuses and a population that makes it in essence Manitoba's third largest city, the University of Manitoba is a bustling knowledge community with an international reputation and reach.
We encourage Manitobans to make life vibrant, rewarding and fun. More than 25,000 people use our recreation facilities at both campuses every year.
The Active Living Centre is a 100,000-square-foot facility and offers 1,000 free weights and accessories, 160 pieces of cardio equipment, a 12-metre climbing wall and a 200-metre elevated running track.
The campuses include a vibrant Indigenous community of thousands of students, staff, faculty and alumni.
Professors are very hit or miss at the UofM. Because of COVID-19 I only had one semester on campus, thus I can not fully comment on on-campus life. The transportation systems heading to and out of the University are quite good and the Active Living Centre is a great gym.
