Campus life

Recent campus growth is built on our history and a commitment to sustainability.

Completed in 2008, our Research and Innovation Centre received national attention from the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada when it was profiled as an example of excellence in functional design in Award, the Magazine of Sustainable Architecture, Construction and Design.

In 2011, the University launched the College Avenue Campus Renewal Project – an ambitious plan to revitalize the architecturally and culturally significant buildings on College Avenue, ensuring a vibrant centre of learning, research and culture remains in the heart of downtown Regina.

Sports facilities

Wellness is an extremely important part of everyone's lives because it embraces the seven dimensions of well-being into a quality way of living.  It is about striving to live life to the fullest and maximizing your personal potential.  Wellness encompasses the conscious, self-directed effort of lifelong learning and decision making that will lead to optimal health and a more successful and balanced existence.  The dimensions of wellness are all important and interrelated.  Through the various wellness programs designed for both and staff and students at the University of Regina our aim is to ensure that everyone can benefit from these programs in order to live WELL and Realize a Better "U"!

Student clubs

    Student life is not just about the classroom. Activities that take place outside of the classroom can be just as important to a student’s education, which is why the Hill School encourages experiential as well as academic learning. There are numerous clubs on campus as well as several events put on each school year. There is a variety of opportunities for our students to get involved with the community at large, and there are a number of experiential opportunities that allow students to apply their skills to real-life situations.

My school experience
Adeyemo Imuetinyan rated 5 out of 5 stars

My experience was excellent and challenging at the same time . I really liked the school and work study environment, with a lot of brilliant lecturers and friendly students. However the conditions of the studios should be improved for better learning conditions.
