The University of Regina (UofR) is a degree granting instituition located in the southeast quadrant of Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada. The main campus is bounded by the streets of Wascana Parkway and University Drive. The UofR presently has a population of over 12,500 full and part-time students.

History

In 1911, Methodists established a residential high school called Regina College on College Avenue starting with an enrollment of 27 students. In 1925, it became a junior college of the University of Saskatchewan (UofS) upon which it started to offer first year classes in arts and sciences. In the 1930s, the range of courses was extended as the campus was transferred to the control of the UofS.

In 1961, the college was granted full-degree granting status and officially became part of the UofS, and thereby know as Regina Campus. The arts and sciences programs evolved with the growth of the Regina Campus, which held its first convocation in 1965. A Faculty Council was formed with the goal of making the campus autonomous. In 1974, the University of Regina was established as an independent instituition.

In the summer of 2005 the University of Regina hosted the 2005 Canada Games. Many events took place in the newly completed Center for Kinesiology and Health Studies (CKHS). The administration of the games proceeded from the University of Regina Students Union (URSU) offices.
