Arrival and Reception in Saskatoon
Help us prepare for your arrival! Notify us at least two weeks before your departure. We require information such as name, address, University of Saskatchewan Student Number and Flight Arrival Information.
To help you with your journey and transition to your new life at the St. Peter's College provides a reception service to all newly arriving international students who are attending St. Peter's College and are arriving in Regina or Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.
The Canadian Bureau for International Education (CBIE) operates an international student reception service at the Vancouver, Toronto and Halifax airports. Their reception desk is usually located in the immigration area from mid-August to mid-September. If you go to this booth, you should be able to receive assistance and answers to your questions.
From mid-August to early September, the University of Saskatchewan will have a kiosk at the airport where you will be greeted and provided with assistance. Look for the Saskatoon Shines booth on the arrival level of the airport. A St. Peter's College representative will be there to assist you and answer any questions you may have.
If you need assistance or are facing an emergency situation, please contact Student Services.
Students who plan to begin their studies in January should be aware that the College is closed from December 24 to January 2 - our Christmas and New Year holidays. Students need to contact us with their arrival information before December 15.
If you advise us of your arrival time St. Peter's College will take care of your travel to the College. Please tell us when you're arriving at least 10 days in advance of your arrival date. The drive will be just over 1 hour from Saskatoon.
