Welcome to Winnipeg!
Information and International Admissions

Winnipeg is a big “little” city located in the heart of Canada. Endless prairies, stunning sunsets and access to freshwater lakes make up the capital city of “Friendly Manitoba.” Winnipeg boasts a thriving arts and culture scene, with a dedicated arts and culture hub in the historic Exchange District,and hosts large annual Festivals such as the Winnipeg Folk Festival, Folklorama and Manyfest.

Winnipeg’s multiculturalism is reflected in its food scene, with local favorites and up and coming restaurants offering a diverse selection of Canadian, ethnic and fusion cuisine. Visit the Forks, a popular public market and outdoor space, and the Assiniboine Park and Zoo, an 80-acre zoo featuring “Journey to Churchill,” an internationally recognized exhibit and research center on animals from the Canadian Arctic.

Nicknamed “Winterpeg,” Winnipeggers embrace the cold winter weather and celebrate with an annual outdoor winter Festival, Festival Du Voyageur. The Red River, one of the twin rivers snaking through the city, is turned into a critically acclaimed skating trail complete with warming huts and a gourmet pop-up restaurant.

When summer eventually does come it’s worth the wait, with high temperatures, long, sunny days and easy access to beaches, lakes, and provincial parks. And the mosquitoes are not as big or as bad as they say.


Conveniently located close to downtown and the center of the city, adjacent to Polo Park, the city’s largest shopping center.
The newly renovated Winnipeg campus was custom designed to facilitate the learning experience. It has a resource library, a student lounge, broadcasting studios, a meditation room, and its laboratories and classrooms are designed to engage students through hands-on learning.

The campus is located at:
1700 Portage Ave.
Winnipeg, MB R3J 0E1


There is a range of living accommodations available near the campus, so Herzing students can find the type of arrangement that will work for them.
Herzing College staff can provide information on different places to look for apartments. There are also numerous housing sites available that will fit your ideal living scenario (for example: price, smoking, number of bedrooms, and access to public transportation).


The Herzing College – Winnipeg campus is accessible by several means and public transit. Student and visitor parking is available on site.
