Housing and Residence
The University of Saskatchewan offers a variety of housing options for students in our U of S Residences. In residence, you will be a part of a diverse and global community where you will develop life-long friendships and lasting memories. Students living in residence receive continuous support, both personal and academic, and appreciate the comfort, security and convenience of living close to classes and university facilities.
You do not need to have been admitted to submit your application to live in residence and you are encouraged to apply early.
Located in the heart of the University of Saskatchewan campus, Voyageur Place includes four residence halls: Athabasca Hall, Saskatchewan Hall, Qu'Appelle Hall and Qu'Appelle Hall Addition. Each of the halls in Voyageur Place is linked to the main classroom and student services buildings on campus by a network of tunnels and skywalks, an attractive feature during the winter.
Students who choose Voyageur Place are part of a close-knit community and receive a full meal plan with access to nutritious, delicious meals. They also have access to tutoring and a faculty-in-residence program, as well as numerous activities planned by residence life staff.
College Quarter offers a unique residence experience in four modern buildings: Aspen, Birch, Pine and Spruce Halls. At College Quarter, students live together in fully furnished apartments, most of them four-bedroom, two-bathroom suites with open concept living and eating areas. Each floor also has large, bright lounges and common areas where students can relax, catch up on homework, or take advantage of study sessions and other academic supports such as tutoring and the faculty-in-residence program.
The four high-rise buildings that make up McEown Park offer something for students with various needs. Students with families, upper-year single students and couples without children, and other single students will all find a home in one of these buildings.
- Assiniboine Hall and Wollaston Hall: one- and two-bedroom suites for upper-year students
- Souris Hall: two-bedroom apartments for students with children
- Seager Wheeler Hall: six-bedroom apartments, each with shared living and dining space
Graduate House is the University of Saskatchewan's newest residence, offering housing for graduate students (in post-graduate diploma, masters or Ph.D. programs) or students enrolled in professional programs, such as Medicine, Dentistry or Veterinary Medicine.
Housing in Saskatoon is very affordable compared to other Canadian cities and our city has excellent bus service, with routes travelling to campus from throughout the city.
In addition to exploring off-campus housing and apartments, there are also a number of affiliated residences on campus or nearby which you may want to consider.
The University of Saskatchewan Students' Union (USSU) offers an online Housing Registry where landlords looking for student tenants post available rental properties, and where students can go to look for off-campus housing.
The USSU also offers more information about off-campus housing, including additional tools to help you learn more about finding a place to live, on its Housing Resources page.
