The University of Saskatchewan offers a variety of housing options for students in our U of S Residences.
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.
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.
