Student for a Day

The “Student for a Day” program goes further than a campus tour by providing students currently in Grade 11,  12, or those who are no longer in high school, with the opportunity to observe the Brandon University campus first-hand.

The Student for a Day experience includes meeting with a member of the Recruitment team, attending a first year class/lab, lunch in the dining hall with current students and a campus tour. There is no cost for Student for a Day!

Where do we meet?

Please check in at Student Services in the A.E. McKenzie Building ten minutes before the commencement of your Student for a Day.


Visitor parking is located in Lots 5 and 6 (not 6A).  Lot 6 is located west of the Western Centennial Auditorium. Both parking lots charge $0.60 per hour and tickets are available at the ticket dispenser located at each entrance.

Guests arriving by bus must park in Lot 5 at the corner of Princess & 20th Street. Bus drivers may drop students off at the north entrance of the A.E. McKenzie Building and must proceed to Lot 5. Bus drivers are required to pay the parking fee of $.60 per hour.  Please do not park your bus on the street as traffic vision is blocked for regular university students/traffic.

We are not responsible for any parking tickets incurred during your visit, so please make sure you purchase the correct amount of tickets and display them on your front dash.
