Everyone deserves an equal chance to learn and thrive where they live, and everyone in our residence community has a responsibility to support an equitable and welcoming learning and living environment. We deeply value the diverse contributions of Black, Indigenous, racialized and 2SLGBTQ+ students, students with disabilities; and actively commit to develop an inclusive and anti-racist community for all of our students. Prejudice or hate of any kind has no place in our residences. Campus Housing staff are committed to helping you find your space to learn and live in residence. Please contact Campus Housing if you have specific needs, or questions about our residence spaces and communities, or how you can get the supports or accommodations you need to thrive in residence. To learn more please see our Plan of Action: Campus Housing Equity, Diversity, Inclusion and Anti-Racism response.
Getting around campus and Waterloo is easy – walk, bike, or ride your way to classes, the library and extracurricular activities. Need to leave campus?

Getting around campus
One of the best things about residence is that you are within a 15-minute walk to classes and other buildings on campus. Discover new paths and even hidden tunnels through campus buildings as you find the fastest way to class. The campus map is the perfect companion as you move around campus.
If you choose to bike, there are bike racks throughout our residence buildings and on campus. Be sure to bring your lock!
Parking on Campus
Bringing your vehicle to campus? You will need to purchase a parking pass for the term and park only in your designated lot. Parking regulations on campus are in effect 24/7 and are strictly enforced.
