UWinnipeg Ensures Safety & Security
on Campus for Students, Faculty & Staff

The University of Winnipeg worked together with the UWSA and UWinnipeg administration, faculty and staff to keep the University community informed and up to date on the implementation of new security measures on campus last week. UWinnipeg continues to collaborate with the Winnipeg Police Service to investigate the threat found on a washroom wall Sept. 19. Classes and business at The University of Winnipeg are back to normal with enhanced security measures in place.

The University of Winnipeg is committed to being an open and accessible institution in downtown Winnipeg while making every effort to ensure it remains a safe and secure environment to learn, to study and to work.

Thanks to the Entire University Community
The University sincerely thanks its entire community of students, faculty, staff and neighbours for the cooperation, patience and understanding demonstrated during this time. The University would also like to express its deep appreciation to the Winnipeg Police Service for its operational support, and to The University of Winnipeg Students’ Association (UWSA) for its continuing assistance and encouragement of students. The University is also grateful to The University of Winnipeg Community Ambassadors, the Downtown & West End BIZ Community Ambassadors, and the University of Manitoba and Red River College security personnel for their assistance. As we move forward we hope to continue to work with these partners to provide a safe and secure community, as well as provide deterrents against future similar actions to ensure a level of safety and confidence for our community members.
