Over the last ten years, the university has invested more than CAD 217 million in the construction of new facilities and renovations of its existing structures, including CAD 66 million towards the Richardson College for the Environment and Science Complex, which attracts more than 2,000 people daily and features more than 30 state-of-the-art teaching and research laboratories.
UWinnipeg also invested in the student residence building and a day care centre. McFeetor’s Hall is home to 177 students and offers single or double dorm options, a meal plan, onsite laundry, and 24-hour security. There are also options for students with families. The UWSA Day Care, run by the students’ association, is one of the largest child care centres in the downtown area and has capacity for 96 pre-schoolers, toddlers, or infants from the UWinnipeg community and the surrounding neighborhoods.
The Buhler Centre, across the street from the main campus, is the home to the faculty of business and economics, as well as the classrooms for PACE (Professional, Applied and Continuing Education) programs, the Plug In Institute of Contemporary Art, and Stella’s Café.
