The University of Regina has roots in Regina College, a small residential high school established by the Methodist church in 1911. The College grew in size and significance becoming a campus of the University of Saskatchewan and, ultimately, an independent degree granting university – the University of Regina – in 1974.
We offer more than 120 undergraduate programs and 78 graduate programs, including many specialized programs such as police studies and public policy.
The University is home to more than 400 active researchers, including faculty members, graduate and undergraduate students, post-doctoral fellows, and seven Canada Research Chairs. Several institutes, centres, laboratories, and facilities on campus support research collaboration and partnerships focused on our research strengths. Indigenous research is a growing focus as we encourage and support Indigenous ways of knowing. Several centres and institutes reflect this in their projects and partnerships.

Whether it be competitive salaries and pension & benefits packages, wellness initiatives or a commitment to diversity, we're sure that we have what you're looking for.

he Archer Library can trace its origins back to the early part of the twentieth century as a small, unorganized collection of books for Regina College, a residential high school opened by the Methodist Church in 1911. First organized according to the Dewey Decimal System in 1921, it was later converted to the Library of Congress system in 1935, with the assistance of the Carnegie Corporation.
During peak periods, the Dr. John Archer Library reserves the right to remove items left unattended for extended periods of time at computers in the library.
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.
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"!
