Campus information

The UWindsor campus enjoys a prime location, only minutes from both downtown Windsor and downtown Detroit, two cities with distinct personalities and no shortage of things to keep you busy all year long. 

Rollerblade along the scenic riverfront trail, then meet some friends for Ethiopian food on University Avenue. Attend an art opening at a small gallery in Windsor or visit the iconic collections at the Detroit Institute of Arts. Catch a local jazz trio at a Windsor bar or head into Detroit for a White Stripes concert. Ice skate in Charles Clark Square or pound the plexiglass at a Red Wings game.

Located at the busiest border crossing in North America, Windsor has always been one of Canada's most international cities, something celebrated every year at the Carrousel of the Nations festival.


The student experience at the University of Windsor really is unique.  One of our key defining features is the degree to which we provide international engagement for all those who choose to study at Windsor.

The University of Windsor is committed to ensuring that its graduates have an exceptional international experience; be it while on an international exchange or co-op, in the classroom with students from around the world or while engaged in out-of-class activities.  The difference here is that our commitment to internationalization is embedded in the UWindsor spirit.  It is, in a way, what makes the University of Windsor experience distinctive. 

Our students engage with others around the world through:

  • Participating in a wide array of activities and services supported by the International Students Centre
  • Joining one or more of our international clubs and organizations
  • Enrolling in an internationally-focused or internationally-delivered academic program
  • Connecting with some of our internationally-trained professors
  • Going abroad to study in another country through Student Exchange, International Co-op or Study Abroad

The city of Windsor is famous for its international flavor with large Asian and South Asian communities and tons of authentic ethnic neighborhood restaurants and stores. The city's location on the Detroit River, minutes from the United States, makes it a popular destination for international business and commerce.
