Graduate House

Residence Services manages three residence building complexes that house more than 2,200 residents. The diverse living spaces offer a variety of accommodations from single bachelor suites, two-bedroom dormitories, four-bedroom apartment-style and up to six bedroom suites. Our well-maintained buildings provide our residents with a safe, affordable location to live that offers the academic and peer support systems to allow students to get the most out of their educational experience at the U of S!

Residences

The U of S residences feature four building complexes, Voyageur Place, McEown Park and College Quarter. 

Voyageur Place is linked to the heart of campus via the tunnel system. Voyageur Place includes four residence halls: Athabasca Hall, Saskatchewan Hall, Qu’Appelle Hall and Qu’Appelle Hall Addition. Students are usually paired with a roommate and enjoy the convenience of a comprehensive meal plan. They also have access to tutoring and a faculty‑in‑residence program.

McEown Park is a group of four high-rise buildings located just south of the main U of S campus. These buildings include Assiniboine Hall and Wollaston Hall (one- and two-bedroom apartments for upper-year students), Souris Hall (two-bedroom apartments for students with children) and Seager Wheeler Hall (six-bedroom apartments). 

The College Quarter residences are brand‑new buildings located in the College Quarter development. At College Quarter, international and Canadian students live together in fully furnished apartments, participate in a variety of activities and have access to tutoring and a faculty-in-residence program. A limited number of three-bedroom accessible apartments are also available for students with disabilities. 

Graduate House at the U of S offers the convenience of living close to where you study and socialize. It offers you the chance to be a part of a close-knit community of grad students like you.

Student Resources

Academic Support

You have all the supports you need to be successful at the U of S, not only in residence but also in the classroom. Our Faculty-in-Residence (FIR) program (currently operating in Graduate House and College Quarter) places faculty members in residence. They are available for one-on-one tutoring and support, and can give advice on how to succeed academically.

Food and Nutrition 

Voyageur Place comes with a full meal plan while the other buildings come with a partial meal plan and money on your Residence Cash Card.  Any student may purchase meal plans or add money to their Residence Cash Card through Culinary Services. Those that don’t have meal plans have kitchens right in the apartment, so you can store food and cook it right in your own space. Of course, you always have access to the many amenities on and surrounding campus if you need a break from cooking.

Support 

Our residence staff work every day just for you. Resident Assistants and Advisors are available to lend a hand or just an understanding ear while Coordinators, Student Life work to ensure the experience of living in residence is a positive one. Asking questions and finding solutions to any challenges you encounter is easy – you have the support of a community of people and access to Resident Assistants that have been through it already.

Safety

Our residences are accessible by key cards only and are monitored by residence life staff. In addition, members of the U of S C Protective Services Department monitor the residences every night between 11 pm and 7 am. The safety of our students is always our first priority.

To help us maintain the safety of all students living in residence, we ask you to do the following:

  • Keep your door locked and do not prop doors open
  • Do not let people you don’t know into residence
  • Report any suspicious people or activity, or any damage or thefts, to Campus Safety or your residence advisor (RA)
  • Do not lend your keys (card or otherwise) to anyone
  • Let your RA know about any doors that aren’t closing or locking properly
