About the University College

University College is an interdisciplinary community comprised of student residency, numerous departments, classrooms and faculty offices at the University of Manitoba.

If you are or plan to be a student in Classics, History, Philosophy, Film, Theatre or Icelandic, most of your classes and virtually all your professors will be in University College. A number of other disciplines are here as well. There are 17 regular classrooms and over 60 faculty offices as well as offices for about 40 graduate students and organizations.
