Campus Development

U鶹ý has embarked on a very ambitious campus and community redevelopment plan.  We opened the Axworthy Health & Rec Plex which houses a state-of-the-art indoor green space, four-lane 60-meter rubberized sprint track, community gym, retractable batting cages, and underground parkade.  The Apartment Complex south of Buhler Centre has 14 storeys and 102 self-contained one, two and three bedroom apartments.  Almost half (46 units) have provincially prescribed rent ceilings to ensure affordability and the remaining apartments are offered at market price.  For more information, see .

Portage Commons

Our Portage Commons, right in front of Wesley Hall, our castle looking building, boasts over 40 per cent more green space. For student leisure and recreation we have a basketball court, front lawn, walkways, and a rose garden which gives the university community a place to enjoy the outdoors. Portage Commons provides year-round opportunities for students and members of the surrounding community.

Spence Street

Our Spence Street mall offers a welcoming community pedestrian mall. The street once a busy roadway is now the site of many campus activities where students and our university community gather to participate in activities such "O" week, campus events and Convocation. The street is now calm of traffic, and has transformed into a people-friendly, green-friendly and bustling hub.

Student Services Centre

U鶹ý’s "Student Services Centre” is located at 489 Portage Avenue in the Rice Centre.  The majority of student services, including Admissions, Student Recruitment, and Student Central, are housed on the first two floors of the Rice Centre.  For a complete listing, see Student Services.

Student Central

is your one-stop student services hub.   Throughout your time as a student, from admission to graduation and beyond, the friendly staff at Student Central are here for you.  Located in the Student Services Centre, Student Central can help you apply to the University, access registration materials, get directions and campus maps, pay your tuition, apply for awards and financial aid, obtain your locker and student photo ID, and complete many other transactions (e.g. transcripts, confirmation of enrolment letters and letters of permission).

Aboriginal Student Services Centre (ASSC)

The University of 鶹ý offers a variety of student services including the Transition Year Program (TYP) for first year aboriginal (First Nations, Métis, Inuit) students. You can access the ASSC for everything from high school visits to admissions, advising, counselling, and registration.

Accessibility Services

(AS) and the Accessibility Resource Centre (ARC) facilitate and promote the ongoing development of an accessible learning environment, which provides students with disabilities the opportunity to participate fully in all aspects of campus life.  Their offices are located in Room 1M35 (1st floor, Manitoba Hall).

Bulman Students' Centre

Bulman Students' Centre is a great student hangout. Here, you’ll find the University of 鶹ý Students’ Association (UWSA) offices, student groups and other associations, as well as the Petrified Sole used bookstore. The lounge is a relaxing space for students with a pool table, arcade games and couches. A variety of student events take place in Bulman Centre throughout the year, so make sure to check it out!  For more information, visit the website.
