Wanna see the real life filming location used for The university in the movie?

These scenes were actually shot at University of Wisconsin-Madison , located in Madison, Wisconsin. Google Map

The house was located in St. Vital, an area in Winnipeg, Manitoba. [Thanks to Sean]

BUT, Terri B kindly wrote in to say that "The house they used for Molly Ringwalds character and her mother was not in Canada, it is actually the same house used as Pee Wee Hermans in Pee Wees big adventure. The address is 1846 Oxley in South Pasadena, California."

The tiny church where the wedding takes place is located just outside of Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. It is still there today. [Thanks to Amber] Chris Miller kindly provided a link.

Some interior and exterior scenes of the high school was filmed at Bishop Conaty Memorial High School 2900 W. Pico Blvd. in Los Angeles, Ca. The school is currently named Our Lady of Lorretto Bishop Conaty High School. [Thanks to Tim Creedon]

Chris Miller kindly updated with some great sleuthing: The APT was In Winnipeg. It was located at the southeast corner of Selkirk and Salter. The building is no longer there now, but in one of the scenes when they are walking into the building, you can see Chochys Pawn Shop reflection in the window that's across the street! Here is a google maps street view of the spot the building was located! [Thanks to Chris Miller]
