About University of Saskatchewan

The University of Saskatchewan and the City of Saskatoon are excited to welcome you to our vibrant cultural and artistic community. There are many university and community groups you can become involved in and events that you can enjoy in all seasons.

Saskatchewan is known for having beautiful open skies, and Saskatoon is one of the sunniest cities in Canada. Summer temperatures can range from 11˚ to 30˚ Celsius. Lightweight clothing is popular in the summer. In spring and autumn, when the weather is cool, a lightweight coat and sweaters are most comfortable. To enjoy our Prairie winter, you should plan to purchase a knitted wool hat, gloves, scarf and sweaters and a good winter jacket, as average winter temperatures can range from -12˚ to -22˚ Celsius.

Campus information

  • Saskatchewan Hall was the first student residence of the university and was completed in 1912. Originally called University Hall, it was designed to provide residences for 150 students. Saskatchewan Hall was named for the Saskatchewan River.
  • Qu'Appelle Hall was originally known as Student’s Residence No. 2 and officially opened in 1916. The design housed 120 students, and in 1963 an addition for 60 additional student residences was completed. The Qu'Appelle Hall Addition is the fourth residence of Voyageur Place and houses male students. Qu'Appelle Hall was named for the Qu'Appelle River.

  • Voyageur Place has historically been organized on the house system, with each house named after an explorer associated with Saskatchewan's early history. Thus, traditionally there were three male houses: Hearne House (named after Samuel Hearne and consisting of the residents of Saskatchewan Hall); Kelsey (named after Henry Kelsey and consisting of the residents of Qu'Appelle Hall); and Lav (named after Pierre Gaultier de Varennes, sieur de La Vérendrye and consisting of the residents of Qu'Appelle Hall Addition). There were also three female houses (all of which were composed of residents of the all-female Athabasca Hall): Pond (named after Peter Pond), Henday (named after Anthony Henday), and Palliser (named after John Palliser).
