Welcome to the Fall Term!

Welcome back to The University of Winnipeg! 

We’re so excited to welcome faculty, staff, and students, as well as the general public, back to campus for what’s sure to be an exciting first week of the 2023 Fall Term. 

“On behalf of our entire campus community, I’d like to extend a heartfelt welcome to each and every one of you,” said Dr. Todd Mondor, UWinnipeg President and Vice-Chancellor. “Whether you’re new to our campus or returning for another exciting semester, we’re thrilled to have you here.”

The University of Winnipeg Students’ Association is hosting their annual back-to-school celebration from Tuesday, September 5 to Thursday, September 7. Visit the free swag tent one of those three days to get your UWSA tote, agenda, and notebook, and then grab a free slice of pizza too. 

There will also be a variety of standalone events, including a student movie night, pick-up basketball games, drop-in dodgeball games, bubble soccer in the Axworthy Health and RecPlex, a ribbon skirt workshop, and much more.
