About
The story of the university began with its founding in September of 1857, when the first students arrived to study at its predecessor, Assumption College. In the more than 150 years that have since passed, University of Windsor has grown as a comprehensive, student-focused university with nearly 15,000 students enrolled in a broad range of undergraduate and graduate programs including several professional schools such as: Law, Business, Engineering, Education, Nursing, Human Kinetics and Social Work. As an undergraduate or graduate student, students can choose from over 120 majors and minors and more than 70 masters and doctoral degrees. At the heart of all of its programs is their exceptional faculty, men and women who are leading scholars in their fields and dedicated mentors in the classroom.
The university fields 17 athletic teams that compete for provincial and national championships. The St. Denis Centre boasts indoor and outdoor tracks, a championship pool, a 2,000-seat indoor fieldhouse for basketball and volleyball games, and a new football and soccer stadium that features a FIFA-approved artificial turf surface and seating for up to 10,000 spectators. The University boasts an active performance program with concerts and recitals by students and faculty members both on- and off-campus. The School of Creative Arts (SoCA) organizes a wind ensemble, a jazz ensemble, and a percussion ensemble, as well as several vocal groups—including the Women’s Chamber Choir, national winner in its category of the 2008 CBC Radio choir competition. globe icon Visit Website
