Student Life

You’ll be spending a lot of time at the College, so we want it to be as comfortable as possible. That’s why both our main campuses offer a full range of services and supports. From food and fitness to counselling and peer tutoring, almost anything you need is within walking distance of your classroom. 


Campus dining is designed to satisfy all appetites, tastes and dietary requirements. The Notre Dame Campus features several dining options including the Buffalo Cafeteria and Voyageur Dining Room. Snacks and sandwiches are available at kiosks throughout the Campus, including Tim Hortons coffee and baked goods.

At the The Roblin Centre in the Exchange District Campus, you can satisfy your caffeine and cruller cravings all day at our full-service Tim Hortons restaurant, or check out the selection of pizza and other goodies at the snack kiosk. Exchange District Campus is also surrounded by some of Winnipeg’s best cafés, ethnic restaurants and street vendors,

The Paterson GlobalFoods Institute at the Exchange District Campus is home to our Hospitality and Culinary Arts students. They run an urban upscale restaurant called Jane’s and a public cafeteria called the Culinary Exchange.

Fitness and Recreation

Whether you’re getting pumped up for an exam, working off some excess energy, or building a hard body, RRC offers fitness facilities at both the Notre Dame Campus and The Roblin Centre in the Exchange District Campus.

Cardio and weight equipment and shower facilities are available to students and alumni with a valid card. If you don’t feel like pumping iron, then take in a cardio or yoga class, or hit the playing fields and running paths surrounding the NDC. 


RRC’s libraries offer everything you need for optimum studying. Current students and alumni have access to our entire catalogue of books, online databases, and computer labs. A reciprocal offer with the U of Manitoba and U of Winnipeg means students can also access all materials from both of those schools. Media services are available at RRC, offering 2,000 pieces of audiovisual equipment and 5,000 audiovisual titles.
