In 1963, the University of Windsor became southwestern Ontario's first autonomous degree-granting institution. Along the way, we've enjoyed affiliations with several smaller colleges that offer an education guided by religious faith and practice.
- Assumption University, founded as Assumption College in 1857, was the original predecessor of the University of Windsor. Assumption University is now a federated partner of UWindsor, offering graduate degrees in Pastoral Ministry and Religious Education.
- Canterbury College is a small, Anglican college that offers courses in language and culture and Christian studies. It also rents off-campus housing to University of Windsor students looking for a familial, Christian-themed residency.
- Iona College, affiliated with the United Church of Canada, offers undergraduate courses in Theology and Lay Theology with a focus on social justice.
