Sheptytsky Institute, a Ukrainian Catholic student residence, is located across the street from the U of S Campus and near St. Thomas More College. The Institute is a co-ed student residence for students pursuing post-secondary training and education. The Institute offers a number of amenities: a non-alcoholic/non-substance/no-smoking, spacious, quiet and clean living environment; furnished bedrooms; recreation and community areas; an in-house dining area; kitchen services with an excellent reputation for home-cooked food and varied menus.
Sheptytsky Institute assists students from rural communities or other parts of Canada and the world with both the transition to university life and, for many, their first time away from home. Our aim is to make Sheps “A Home Away From Home”. All students are given opportunities to become involved in liturgical activities within the Institute and on Campus through the services of the Campus Pastoral Ministry office. Students are also provided with opportunities to experience Ukrainian cultural-heritage activities and events arranged for by the Institute staff. The Sheps Residence Community student representative council is actively involved in the social, recreational and cultural life of the Institute.
Ukrainian Catholic students are encouraged to consider Sheptytsky Institute as their place of residence while studying at the University, SIAST or other educational centres in Saskatoon. Students from a variety of faith traditions and cultural backgrounds have over the years called, and continue to call, Sheps their home while pursuing their studies in Saskatoon.
