Campus Poverty Report

We recently sent out a survey to all students through their UWinnipeg email accounts asking students about the costs associated with attending university.

While we realize that one of the major costs to coming to university is tuition, we also recognize that the costs of rent, groceries, transportation, etc., can act as a barrier and cause stress on students.


We have a launched a survey that is being sent to all U of W students’ webmail accounts. We will use this information to adjust our services and better advocate for our students.  Students’ responses to this survey will be kept confidential. The information gathered will only be analyzed and reported at the group level; individual responses will not be reported.

The survey closes Wednesday, Oct. 11, 2017! 

Stay Tuned:

We will post the results of the survey here and how as an organization we can better support our students.
