Privacy - Parents and Supporters

The University of Saskatchewan and all Residence staff are committed to the wellbeing of our students. In accordance with The Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy legislation, we cannot discuss details about a student or inform of their activities without the student’s direct consent.

This legislation includes speaking with parents, guardians and family members meaning Residence staff are unable to share information such as a student’s roommate concerns, application status, Community Standards breaches and sanctions, and health concerns.

In extreme circumstances such as serious safety concerns, information may be shared on a case-by-case basis. At any time, a student may choose to sign or revoke consent allowing for the sharing of information with specific parties.
These measures not only meet our legal requirements but also protect the safety of our residents.
