The buildings on campus are very nice. If you like architecture and perhaps photography (summer or winter) the centre of campus is a very nice place to visit. I also enjoyed studying there in what was quite a laid-back yet engaging atmosphere.

In keeping with the tradition, all campus buildings, old and new, boast a Greystone rock exterior. Student housing is available on... More

the buildings are lovely, and the people in general are all very helpful and kind. There is a lot of history to be found in this location and many things that are fairly futuristic as well. I think it is a wonderful place to just spend time wandering about and looking at the historical information

The campus is very enjoyable and the library is really amazing. The university is nicely laid out and worth the visit. One building that was interesting was the biology building. It has an indoor garden with a food fair.

We spent a couple of hours here and enjoyed it. It was easy to get down to the walking trail by the river and there are some nice buildings that provide good photo spots.

I love this place! Walk around the bowl and enjoy the architecture. Go into the Biology/Geology building and marvel at the wall of Tyndall fossils hand picked by professors who lecture(d) there. Amazing. They also have aquariums and a garden, and its free. Coffee and food available.

Have toured the campus grounds and buildings many times and it is still enjoyable and appealing. This time was focused in the agricultural college which was not only very informative but impressive. The greystone is truly a beautiful campus signature!

Sculptures and a museum by the education building. Art galleries, food courts, usually stuff going on in the tunnel that connects place riel to arts building. Worth... More

It is an understatement that the beautiful University of Saskatchewan campus is unique in Canada. Most visitors to Saskatoon will enjoy strolling between the architecturally attractive old and new buildings, all constructed with "greystone" (limestone) building blocks. There are many historical buildings here on campus. One rarely noticed small stone building on the campus is situated a few 100 metres... More

I went to the school to tuck my daughter in to her residence. The event was uneventful just as I was hoping it would be!
