Did You Know?

  • 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!

  • The Luther College Residence is a great place for student athletes; it’s conveniently located and comes with a great meal plan.

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

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • The Luther College Residence hosts multiple social events and programs throughout the year, such as Christmas Dinner, International Night, Mardi Gras, and Karaoke Night.

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

  • 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 to Host Project of Heart Program

With the arrival of a new year comes the promise of growth, hope, and – as always – progress. Starting in January 2016, Luther College at the University of Regina is pleased to host a seven-week program called Project of Heart.

Project of Heart teaches about the history of the residential school system in Canada. Originally created by University of Regina graduate student Sylvia Smith, this free program was created to be inclusive of all communities and is open to all ages. Using an artistic approach, the people and families who were and still are affected by this system will be commemorated. This program is part of the process of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission. Come and be a part of this experience!
