  • The Luther Library has over 18,000 items in its collection, 3,000 books checked out per year, and 6,000 students who come through its door per month.

  • Luther College opened the first residence on campus in 1971, and is still a “home away from home” to students: meals, laundry, and lifelong friendship included.

  • ALL U of R students including Luther students can take Luther courses.

  • It pays to go to Luther College. Literally. Luther students are eligible for an additional $100,000 in scholarships, in addition to all of the awards available to them as U of R!

  • Luther College students pay the same tuition and fees as other University of Regina students.

  •  Every single degree program at Luther College offers an optional experiential learning component; gain real world experience and get paid while you go to school!

  • Luther College offers the best of both worlds: a smaller college environment with all the benefits of a larger university.

  • Luther College offers year-round campus and residence tours as well as one-on-one enrollment counselling.
