University College residences

If you think you'd enjoy being part of a small, close-knit group where the goal is to build and foster a fun and supportive community, then you may find that a college residence is the right place for you. All four college residences are smaller than Campus Housing, which means you'll get to know everyone quickly!


  • Smaller communities with rooms for approximately 200-350 students each
  • Most spaces for first-year students are in traditional-style rooms
  • All four colleges have all-inclusive meal plans rather than the declining-debit WatCard dollars used by Campus Housing

The University College Residences are independent but affiliated with the larger UWaterloo campus. Each University College is a smaller community with its own character and distinctive programs where you can get involved and contribute. You are encouraged to check out each website and arrange a visit to see for yourself.
