College Royal is an annual open house that showcases the clubs, student activities and agricultural roots of the University of Guelph; in fact, it is the largest university open house event in all of North America! Since 1925, College Royal has welcomed its doors to students, staff, alumni and the community on the third weekend of March. In recent years, over 20,000 guests have been welcomed to tour the campus, interact with current students, and learn a thing or two from the activities that are hosted.

College Royal is 100% student organized and run. This year’s team decided to prepare our regular content in an unconventional virtual format, so we could continue to carry out our 97th year strong. With the many videos, recipes, quizzes and more, we hope you are able to take something away from this event! Enjoy, and check out our website for information about College Royal 2022!

Executives

College Royal is 100% run and organized by students at the University of Guelph in Ontario, Canada. This year’s team was appointed by Senior Officers in September, and have been working diligently since to make our virtual Open House Weekend a reality. While COVID-19 didn’t stop us from preparing an event this year, it did present some challenges as we transitioned to a website format. The College Royal Society is lucky to have such a fantastic team of executives that delved into their virtual roles and created fun and informative content for our website.
