Campus Tours

The campus tours offered by Student Recruitment are not suitable for students beginning classes in September 2017. Admitted students beginning classes in September should plan to attend New Student Orientation or contact the University 1 First Year Centre to arrange an appointment with a first year advisor.

High school students entering Grade 12 (or younger) who wish to attend a Friday campus tour in August should contact Kyle Lougheed, Student Recruitment Events Coordinator, at Kyle.Lougheed@umanitoba.ca or 204-474-8806 to arrange a tour. Campus tours are not offered from September 1 – 15 during the start of fall classes.

Campus tours are available most Fridays at 10:00am and 2:00pm and are suitable for prospective students (students who have not yet been admitted to the University of Manitoba) in Grade 10 and up. Parents, family and friends are also welcome to attend.

Campus tours are approximately 90 minutes in length and focus on the spots and services of most relevance to new university students. All tours conclude with a short advising session where we provide detailed information about our application process and can answer any specific questions you may have.

Some of the areas we focus on as part of our tours include:

  • Student services and important offices
  • Examples of typical classrooms
  • Visits to popular faculty buildings
  • Campus libraries
  • Campus recreation and social opportunities
  • Student residences

All tours are offered on our Fort Garry campus, the home of the majority of our academic programs and all of the U of M’s direct entry programs. We do not offer campus tours on weekends or holidays.

Guests should meet for campus tours at the designated meeting spot on the 2nd floor of University Centre, outside the Student Life office. All guests are encouraged to park in the University Centre parkade. For a map with directions to parking, click here.
