Mail Services

Mail Services are available inside TW Outfitters. In addition to purchasing stamps and sending mail, students can rent their TWU Student Mailbox. A TWU Student Mailbox is required to receive mail on campus, for resident students only.

Student Ministries

Student Ministries at TWU is focused on developing spiritually maturing disciples of Jesus Christ.  Spiritual maturity is not found in doing one thing over and over until it is perfected. Spiritual growth can occur through growing in love and devotion to God during times of worship. Chapel services, which take place Monday-Friday from 11–11:30 a.m., provide an opportunity for the campus to gather and worship together. Spiritual growth is also deepened through times of Bible study and prayer. TWU provides many opportunities for small group Bible studies, prayer, and mentoring to help students’ roots of faith to grow deep. Finally, spiritual maturity occurs through local and global outreach. By serving and loving others in Christ's name, students are able to grow in their understanding of God and how they can lead a significant and impactful life.

Security Services

Campus Security is a part of the Security and Parking Services Department, and our office is located in the Welcome Centre at the main entrance of our campus. The in-house security staff is available to the whole campus 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and 365 days per year to ensure that the campus is safe and secure.
