uSask, partner break ground on new campus-based hotel

October 18, 2016

The University of Saskatchewan and developer PR Hotels Ltd have broken ground on a new nine-storey hotel that will aim to serve both the university and surrounding community. Under the terms of the partnership, PR Hotels will be responsible for the capital and operating costs of the hotel, and the university will provide a long-term lease on a parcel of university-owned land. “We are excited to work with a private partner to make effective use of some of the university’s land to fill a need for the university and surrounding community in an effective and collaborative way,” said uSask President Peter Stoicheff. “Ultimately, the goal is to bring benefit to our students, to the university, and to the community.” uSask
