Did You Know?

  • 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.

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

  • Luther students can register in Arts, Science, or Media, Art, and Performance degree programs. Luther students are U of R students and receive a U of R degree.

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

  • 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!

  • Small classes = big advantages. As a federated college, Luther College classes are typically smaller. This allows for students to connect with their profs and classmates.

  • All programs at Luther College offer study abroad opportunities. As an affiliate of the U of R, we have partnerships with 450 universities across 70 different countries.

Luther Receives Funding from Enabling Accessibility Fund

Luther College at the University of Regina received $33,742 to make infrastructure improvements to one of the College’s semi-accessible washrooms so that it will become a fully-accessible all-gender washroom. The project was funded by the Government of Canada’s Enabling Accessibility Fund.

The Enabling Accessibility Fund supports the capital costs of construction and renovations related to improving physical accessibility and safety for people with disabilities in Canadian communities and workplaces, and works to enable Canadians with disabilities to participate in their community and the economy. The grant from the Government of Canada reinforces Luther College’s initiative to break down barriers and provide independence and dignity for all university students, faculty, staff, and campus guests.

“I commend Luther College for recognizing the need to improve campus facilities and for taking action,” stated the Honourable Kirsty Duncan, Minister of Science and Minister of Sport and Persons with Disabilities. “Community initiatives like these are necessary to help build a more inclusive and accessible Canada.”

“It’s great to see communities break down barriers with the help of funding programs like the Enabling Accessibility Fund. This project will create an accessible space that will benefit all residents and ensure full participation for people with disabilities.”

“Luther College at the University of Regina wants to help ensure that everyone has equal opportunity to realize their full potential, and it begins with creating an inclusive and accessible environment for students and guests who study at or visit Luther College,” says Dr. Bryan Hillis, President of Luther College. “Thanks to the support from the Government of Canada, we are doing our part in working toward a barrier free Canada.”

This project is funded by the Government of Canada’s Enabling Accessibility Fund.
