A welcome-back to beat all the rest

Are you looking forward to getting back to campus soon? Need a little incentive? We have awesome news to share with you – the headliner for this year’s U Fest!

U Fest 2015

Featuring A Tribe Called Red with guests

September 17

4:00 – 8:30 p.m.

Located in the TransCanada Amphitheatre, near the MRU pond

Co-hosted by SAMRU and MRU

Mark your calendars now!


Tickets are only $10.00 in advance, and since this is a MRU student event, you will require your MRU student ID to purchase tickets. Purchase your tickets from The Hub in Wyckham House. There is a maximum 4 tickets per MRU ID limit, to make sure everyone who wants to come can get a ticket in advance.

Too slow? Tickets will be $15.00 at the gate – but save yourself some money and get your tickets early!

What to expect

U Fest is SAMRU & MRU’s annual welcome-back all-ages licensed event. There will be great live bands, a BBQ, a licensed area put on by SAMRU’s The Hub, prizes to win, and a lot of fun activities. Government-issued picture ID will be required to enter the licensed area.
