The University of Windsor is a mid-sized university in Windsor, Ontario, Canada. Located in Canada's "automotive capital" across the border from Detroit, this modern-looking university has a student body of approximately 11,000 full-time students (mostly undergraduate) and 3,800 part-time students. Situated at the western end of Lake St. Clair, on the Detroit River, the University of Windsor is Canada's southernmost university.

The University has developed a number of partnerships with local businesses and industry, including the multi-million dollar University of Windsor/Chrysler Canada Ltd. Automotive Research and Development Centre, the only research facility of its kind in North America, and a unique agreement with the Ambassador Duty-Free Store, at Canada's busiest border crossing, which provides student jobs, 400 parking spaces, and an annual cash annuity.

The university is represented in Canadian Interuniversity Sport by the Windsor Lancers.
