$15 million for uSask on-campus housing

February 4, 2009

On Wednesday, the Saskatchewan government announced it will commit $15 million towards the University of Saskatchewan's student residence project. uSask president Peter MacKinnon says the first development of on-campus housing in over 30 years will enable the school to remain competitive at attracting and retaining students. Construction is expected to begin this year. Earlier this week, uSask's student union released a report on how the lack of affordable housing in Saskatoon is a barrier for students.
