“Canada's Most Picturesque Campus”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

Want to sample the ambience of those movies that take place on spacious historic campuses like Princeton,Oxford, Yale, etc.? The University of Saskatchewan Campus - notably the Bowl - imparts that feeling in the summer and fall especially. A good time to visit just for a stroll is on the weekend - unless you like being part of the bustling student throng hurrying off to lectures. The U of S is known for its agricultural research. Horticulturalists and gardening enthusiasts in general will enjoy the flower beds, various trees and other landscaping features on the campus.

“Visiting the university there is a lot to do and see”
Reviewed 5 April 2014

Often go up for conferences. Beautiful campus especially in summer. Enjoy the University Bookstore, very good selection. Usually there is a lecture in the evening open to the pubiic. Always something to do and learn. Parking can be a problem in the day

Was able to get in on time and my dog had eye surgery there. Very good place to bring your dog/cat for eye surgeries.

“Most beautiful campus in Canada”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

The U of S is a wonderful place to visit for its history or even just to sit under the canopy of trees in front of the Thorvaldson Building or in the bowl. Place Riel has an information centre, pharmacy, travel agent upstairs and a food court downstairs. The Thorvaldson Building air plane room, the geology building animal and dinosaur display, the agriculture building, and the engineering building are probably the most interesting spots on the main campus. There is always information about current events going on in the tunnel connected to lower Place Riel and the Arts & Science Building. In the winter, you can enjoy everything without taking too many trips outside. Place Riel all the way to the Physics Building and Agriculture Building are connected through a series of tunnels and overpasses. Contact the information centre about getting a student guide if needed.
