When you arrive at Maternal Registration prior to having your baby, you will be asked your room preference. Click here to see the room options at Royal University Hospital. We offer standard ward accommodation to all patients at no charge.
Please note that rooms will be given out on a first-come, first-serve basis and are subject to availability. If your optimal choice is not available, the next best room will be given to you. Due to the high number of births in Saskatoon and the short length of your stay, once you have been assigned a room, we ask that you remain in your assigned room until you are discharged.
