Varsity View Real Estate Listings and Information
Varsity View is a mostly residential neighbourhood located near the center of Saskatoon. It is immediately south of the University of Saskatchewan campus. It is an older suburban subdivision, comprising a mixture of low-density, single detached dwellings, detached duplexes and apartment-style units. There are approximately 3,500 residents living in this middle-income area. Its proximity to the university gives this area its relatively high student population - almost 25% in 2005.
Development was spurred by the establishment of the University of Saskatchewan in 1907. The land for the Varsity View neighbourhood was annexed by the city in 1911; it was among the first parcels of land annexed after Saskatoon's incorporation five years earlier. The majority of the housing stock was built between 1946 and 1960. The oldest homes are located at the neighbourhood's north and west ends, as development progressed from the university campus and Nutana's eastern edge.
