History of the Light Source Guesthouse

The Light Source Guesthouse (Ogle Hall) was built in 1966 and owned by the Catholic Diocese of Saskatoon. The building originally contained facilities for 32 seminarians including a chapel. It was later turned into a student residence in 1996 by St. Thomas More College (STM), and in 1998 it was renamed Ogle Hall after former rector and Member of Parliament Father Bob Ogle. The University of Saskatchewan purchased the building from STM in 2011. It is now leased by Canadian Light Source Inc. (CLS) and has been extensively renovated for use as a modern guesthouse facility for CLS users.
