Students and parents can learn more about the University of Manitoba and meet representatives from our many academic programs as part of our evening Parents Program at Open House 2017. The Parents Program is held in University Centre at the University of Manitoba's Fort Garry Campus in south Winnipeg. Students and parents should proceed directly to University Centre upon arrival to campus. Free parking is available in the "Q" student parking lot – click here for parking information. Signage will be posted directing you to University Centre from the parking area.
Once at University Centre, visit the Information Village to connect with university representatives and to learn more about our many programs and services, or attend one of our special evening presentations. This is a come-and-go style event, so you can arrive and leave at any time you like between 6:00pm and 8:00pm.
Our Information Village is open for you to explore from 6:00pm to 8:00pm. All of the U of M's academic programs and most of our major service providers are represented here. Visit the different booths to learn more about our academic programs and talk one-on-one with staff, professors, and current U of M students. You'll also find booths focused on applying to university, admission requirements, scholarships and awards, sports and recreation, and student groups.
Offered at different times throughout the evening, and held in the same classrooms you'll be studying in as a U of M student, our evening presentations focus on what it's like to be a university student, and what students – and their parents – can do to prepare for university. Visit the Main Stage on the 1st Floor of University Centre and wait at the grouping station five minutes before the presentation start time if you wish to attend a presentation as part of the Parents Program.
Please note: Campus tours and program-specific presentations are not offered as part of the evening Parents Program, but are available as part of our Daytime Program. To view details about the Daytime Program, please click here.
