About University of Manitoba

Welcome to the University of Manitoba - western Canada's first university. Founded more than 137 years ago, and located in the heart of the country, we are the region’s largest and only research intensive university offering over 100 degrees, diplomas, and certificates – more than 60 at the undergraduate level including professional disciplines such as medicine, law, and engineering.

Our energetic university community is comprised of close to 30,000 students, 8,700 faculty and staff, and 190,000 alumni. Nearly 13 per cent of our current students are international, representing close to 104 countries.

Our university stimulates over $1.8 billion in economic activity in the province, and we are leaders in Manitoba’s knowledge economy with groundbreaking research in areas such as nanotechnology, functional foods and nutraceuticals, HIV/AIDS, and climate change.

With a strong legacy of excellence to guide us, the University of Manitoba and its dynamic community of researchers, students, teachers and staff, are addressing the challenges facing Canada and the world in the 21st century. 

The University of Manitoba is a coeducational, nondenominational, government-supported institution. It is a member of the Association of Commonwealth Universities and of the Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada.

Campus information

Campus Day Care Centre Inc. was established to provide quality day care in a secure, stimulating environment where children will have an opportunity to develop physically, socially, emotionally and intellectually to their fullest potential.

The centre is situated in a newer "custom-designed" one-story building with a "child-inspired" playground on site. The children are grouped in three age-related rooms which run a theme-based program.Campus Day Care provides care for full and some part-time schedules Monday through Friday 7:45 am to 6:00 pm. 

One parent must be affiliated with the University of Manitoba either as an employee or a day student. Enrollment is through an existing waiting list. 

Campus Day Care Centre Inc. is non-profit and licensed by the Provincial Day Care office. We believe our employees have chosen their career because of a belief in the prime importance of their job and a positive commitment to the development of children.

The University of Manitoba is located on Anishinabe and Metis traditional land and is home to a thriving community of Indigenous researchers, staff and more than 2,000 First Nations, Metis and Inuit students, including over 150 graduate students — one of the largest Indigenous student bodies in the country.
