We could tell you about how we started out in 1911 as the modest Regina College, or about how we grew in size and significance until we ultimately became a degree-granting university, the University of Regina, in 1974. Instead, we will tell you about what makes us different and makes us one of the leading mid-sized universities in Canada:
1. We put our money where our mouth is. We are so confident that our grads will receive employment that we guarantee it! It's called our UR GUARANTEE and it was the first program of its kind in Canada.
2. We can show you the world. Students in our UR International Study Abroad Program get to study in some of the most fascinating and beautiful places on earth.
3. We can help you earn while you learn. Our students get the opportunity to gain valuable experience-based learning while pursuing almost any undergraduate degree.
4. We provide a home away from home. We have six fully-furnished residence buildings that offer a wide variety of housing options.
5. We're not too big and not too small. We are a smallish campus that offers a broad range of programming and world-class facilities.
