First Year Experience

Life experiences in first year can come at you fast! Lots to see, learn, and stay on top of. You may be feeling a little overwhelmed by everything right now, but fear not - Campus Housing is here to support your First Year Experience at the University of Waterloo! From helping you Transition to university life, learning more about your Identity, staying on top of your Wellness, and exploring Growth for life beyond first year, we’re here to assist you. 

Throughout the school year (September to April), your Residence Life Don will share useful resources and knowledge from across campus that will help you be better prepared for the challenges ahead. Be sure to check this page often for new resources and updates as we introduce them throughout the year! 
Congratulations again on joining us here at the University of Waterloo – we’re here to help your first year be a successful and memorable one!
