NEED TO KNOW
There are 2 key steps to getting textbooks for your courses.
1. Find out what textbooks you need by checking the online textbook list
(https://www.boothuc.ca/registrar/) or by checking your course syllabus.
2. Buy your textbooks from:
• The University of Winnipeg Bookstore
• Online through Amazon or directly from the Publisher’s Website
• From Booth UCs Used Books Facebook Group (Booth UC used books for sale)
Student ID Cards
If you are a new student to Booth, you will need to have your ID picture taken
on orientation day. If you are a returning student, you will need to pick up a
Validation sticker for your current ID card. Lost cards will be replaced for a fee.
Booth UC does not have student parking available. Students must make
their own arrangements for parking.
Post-secondary Peggo cards may be purchased from the Student Services
Info Desk. A valid Student ID is required. Payment can be made by cash,
debit, VISA or MasterCard.
Current bus routes and schedules can be found on the Winnipeg Transit website.
For more information call (204) 986-5700 or visit www.winnipegtransit.ca.
It is recommended that students who ride a bicycle to Booth UC lock
it in the bicycle cage behind the Webb Place building. This is a locked
cage accessible only by key which can be obtained at the Student Services
BOOTH UNIVERSITY COLLEGE - STUDENT GUIDE 2017/18 6
NEED TO KNOW
The gymnasium has designated hours for general use by all students. The
gymnasium must be reserved at the Student Services Information Desk.
Please contact Student Services for more information.
Commuting Student Storage
Lockers are available to students in Webb Place campus. Students are required
to register for a locker at the Student Services Information Desk on a ﬁrst-come-
ﬁrst-served basis. Students must provide their own locks, which must be removed
prior to the end of the academic year. The University College assumes no
responsibility for the security of the items stored. Lockers are located in the
basement hallways and in the locker rooms/washrooms, and also in the
washrooms on the third ﬂoor (in the back hallway).
How do I register for classes?
Course registration is done through your online portal. Follow the instructions
provided. The two most common errors to avoid are:
1. only choosing the course from the left column and not choosing a section from
the right column and
2. forgetting to press submit. Talk to your advisor if you have questions about
which courses you should take. If you do have problems with your portal, let
us in the Registrar's Oﬃce know and we would be glad to help.
7 BOOTH UNIVERSITY COLLEGE - STUDENT GUIDE 2017/18
How do I make changes to my courses?
You have until the end of the Registration Revision period to make changes to
your schedule. This date is typically two weeks after the start of classes, but
check the Academic Calendar to be sure. You can make the changes in your
portal just like you did to initially register. Adding a class is exactly the same
and to drop a course, you just need to move the appropriate drop down menu
up to the "blank" and press submit. Changes made during Registration Revision
period receive a full refund.
Changes after the Registration Revision period require a Voluntary Withdrawal
(VW) request. A Voluntary Withdrawal requires a signature from your advisor.
A VW will show up on your transcript and no course fees are refunded, so it's
better to get your courses set in the ﬁrst two weeks. For more details refer to
the Academic Calendar (pg. 31).
What is a Certi�icate of Enrolment and where can I get one?
There are two basic formats for the Certiﬁcate of Enrolment. One is just a
statement of your full/part time status for a period of time, which is typically
used for immigration, insurance, and student discounts. The second is a
detailed breakdown with your courses and tuition owed that is typically used
by sponsors, banks, student loans – anyone who wants to know how much you
owe through being a full time student.
A Certiﬁcate of Enrolment can be requested at the Student Services Info Desk
or by contacting the Registrar’s Oﬃce directly. Processing the form may take
a few business days, so make sure to request the form in advance.
BOOTH UNIVERSITY COLLEGE - STUDENT GUIDE 2017/18 8
Where do I �ind forms?
All the Registrar’s Oﬃce forms can be found online on the Registrar’s Oﬃce
website https://www.boothuc.ca/registrar. Just scroll down and click
“Registrar’s Oﬃce forms”.
Where can I �ind my Professor?
Most faculty (professors) oﬃces are located on the 3rd ﬂoor of the Waldron
Building. The oﬃces for the core faculty of the Bachelor of Business Administration
program can be found in Petersen Hall.
How will Booth UC provide me with important information?
Important information will be communicated through e-mail. It is very
important that you notify the Registrar’s Oﬃce of your current e-mail address.
Most information regarding your courses can be found in your course syllabus.
If there is a speciﬁc update that your professor wants to communicate, like a
class cancellation or information about an assignment, they will typically e-mail
If you are on the waitlist for a course, you will be notiﬁed by e-mail if space
9 BOOTH UNIVERSITY COLLEGE - STUDENT GUIDE 2017/18

common lounges. The lounges on the 1st and 3rd ﬂoors feature couches, tables,

The Bistro is closed! Where can I get coffee and snacks?!?
