You don’t have to be dedicated to book learnin’ to appreciate the U of S. The campus is also the best place to admire Collegiate Gothic style architecture. Shortly after the turn of the century, the first campus buildings were built with native limestone (greystone), mined north of the campus. Tyndall stone from Manitoba was used in later years. Combined, the tyndall and greystone buildings have helped create a mesmerizing architectural signature in Saskatoon.
Stroll through the tree-lined walkways and stop for a picnic in the Bowl, located at the heart of the U of S campus. The 1910 College Building flanks one end of the grassy park and is designated a National Historic Site of Canada. The surrounding residential neighbourhoods have a variety of architectural styles and it is well worth a walk around to take a look.
