                SASKATOON
                The University of Saskatchewan’s historic main campus is recognized as one of the most
                beautiful in the country, and our city is known as a hidden gem by those who visit and come
                to call it home.

                Our campus is found at the heart of the vibrant city of Saskatoon, which has a growing
                population of more than 270,000 people.

                Saskatoon is a welcoming city for newcomers and offers many opportunities to experience
                Canadian culture. We also celebrate cultures from around the world.

                As the largest city in the province of Saskatchewan, Saskatoon offers the amenities of a large
                urban centre, along with the friendliness and accessibility of a smaller city.

                Here, you can have a true Canadian experience in a city that is safe, affordable and student-
                friendly.
