University Heights Suburban Development Area (SDA) is an area in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan (Canada). It is a part of the east side community of Saskatoon. It lies (generally) south of the outskirts of the City and the Rural Municipality of Corman Park No. 344, east of the South Saskatchewan River, and Lawson SDA, north of the Lakewood SDA, and Nutana SDA.[1]

The neighbourhoods are served by Central Avneue, McOrmond Drive, Fedoruk Drive, Attridge Drive which are main streets of the city. There will be a perimeter highway around the northern sector.[3] Saskatchewan Highway 5 enters this north eastern SDA of Saskatoon. SK Hwy 5 runs past the Patience Lake Potash mine, Humboldt, and Kamsack to the Manitoba border.

In May 2013 the City confirmed plans to build a north commuter bridge connecting with a northwestern extension of McOrmond Drive within the SDA. This will connect directly with Marquis Drive on the west side and provide an alternate city bypass route to Circle Drive.
