Our students
At 97 and counting, the University of Manitoba has produced more Rhodes Scholars than any other university in Western Canada. Student success shows up everywhere, from kinesiology students earning Canada's highest success rate in their certification exam to pharmacy students pulling in a number 1 ranking in their licensing examinations.

Our educators
Students of the University of Manitoba not only receive world-class instruction from our award-winning professors and researchers, they also have the opportunity to work alongside these great minds, gaining research experience at the undergraduate level.

Our innovators
We have a legacy of groundbreaking research in nanotechnology, functional foods and nutraceuticals, HIV/AIDS, and climate change. Research meets industry in Smartpark Research and Technology Park, our home for cutting-edge companies, all of which are partnered with the university.

Our Bison
The Bison sports program is a source of great pride at the University of Manitoba. The Bison men's football team, recent winners of the Vanier Cup, is only one example in a diverse athletic program that includes hockey, volleyball, basketball and soccer, and has 14 national championships under its belt.

Our first year
We want our students to succeed, and success starts with making the right choices. Enter University 1. Our student-focused first year program provides a flexible learning environment for students to explore their interests and the diverse range of academic options available at our university.

Our campuses
The university consists of a main Fort Garry Campus, spanning over 676 acres, a downtown Bannatyne Campus, adjacent to Winnipeg's Health Sciences Centre, and many other smaller satellite locations. There are 13.7 km of roads, 7,090 parking spaces, and 1,266 residence rooms for students.

Our spirit
The spirit of our university is built on more than 130 years of unique tradition. Architecture has Ditchball, Agriculture has the Bed Push, and the university has its Beautification and Sneaker days. Whatever the tradition, the university community passionately rallies around these spirited events year in and year out.

Our Quad
Located at the heart of the Fort Garry Campus, the Duckworth Quadrangle is one of the great places to meet, socialize and enjoy campus life. The tree-laden park is also a wonderful starting point to explore the rest of the campus, which includes more than 60 major buildings.

Our river
Manitoba's history and culture flow from the Red River. The Red has been a heartland for Aboriginal and Métis people and was the birthplace of Manitoba. Bordering the University of Manitoba's Fort Garry Campus, the Red gives students, faculty and staff the opportunity to enjoy a stroll along its lush banks.
