STUDENT SERVICES

Directory of Services for Students

 

The University’s many services for students are administered by several distinct offices on campus and accessible through multiple areas of the website.

Student Affairs’ Student Support website directs students to dozens of supportive services related to academics, career planning and development, experiential education, enrolment, health and wellness, successful living, orientation and transition, social and cultural factors, and further topics. It includes a comprehensive list of student support services at the University.

Campus Services provides a number of integrated services intended to enhance the campus experience of UWindsor students and create a vibrant university community. This area of the University encompasses the Bookstore; Food, Catering, and Conference Services; Parking; Student Health Services; the University Print Shop; and the UWinCARD Office.

The University’s Student Life portal directs students to information related to international student life, housing and dining on campus, recreation and fitness, and student organizations.

The University of Windsor Students’ Alliance (UWSA) is the full-time undergraduate student union and a member of the Canadian Federation of Students. The UWSA advocates for, represents, and serves the needs of students in myriad ways. Specifically, it administers health and dental plans, bus passes, and scholarships for undergraduate students, holds events on and off campus, and coordinates over 150 student groups.

The Office of Student Experience, also known as Student Affairs, is the administrative office at the University charged with enriching the student experience at UWindsor by providing programs and services that advance student success, contribute to campus engagement, and promote a safe, caring, and inclusive environment.

We’ve compiled a categorized directory of the campus services to which you may wish to direct your students:
