About the University

The University of Windsor is a comprehensive, student-centred university, with more than 16,500 students enrolled in a broad range of undergraduate and graduate programs including several professional schools such as Law, Business, Engineering, Education, Nursing, Human Kinetics and Social Work. The new Ed Lumley Centre for Engineering Innovation, the largest capital project on campus to date, opened in the fall of 2012 as a world-class hub for innovation, featuring the latest in classroom teaching technology, an Industrial Courtyard for collaborative work with the region and 80 research labs.

UWindsor will expand its campus into the downtown core when the Schools of Visual Arts, Music, Social Work, the film production program and the Centre for Executive and Professional Education, move into renovated historical buildings in 2014.

The University of Windsor is located next to North America’s busiest international border crossing, where Ontario’s highway 401and Michigan’s I-75 meet, and facing one of Canada’s most beautiful waterfronts on the Detroit River. This location speaks to UWindsor’s greatness as an internationally oriented, multi-disciplined institution that actively enables a broad diversity of students, faculty and staff to make a better world through education, scholarship, research and engagement.

From that diversity, the University fosters an atmosphere of close cooperation between faculty and students, creating a unifying atmosphere of excellence across all of its faculties to encourage lifelong learning, teaching, research and discovery.

Its basic characteristics of openness, warmth and support make the University of Windsor an exceptionally welcoming community for students and faculty from Asia, Europe, and Africa — or from just down the street. There are more than 110,000 UWindsor alumni, with 35,000 living in the Windsor-Essex region.
