Three Step Process

1) Do Your Research and Decide

We have lots of options: traditional (dorm) style, suite (apartment) style, or a hybrid option (dorm style with an optional meal plan). Compare available residences to find the one that’s best for you! Next, decide if you’re applying with or without roommates (mixed gender requests welcome!).

2) Apply

When you accept an offer, you are agreeing to be financially responsible for your entire residence contract. This means that while fees are not due until the fees arranged deadline for the term you apply for, you will be required to pay your full residence fees, and will not be refunded if you decide to cancel your contract before its end date.

3) Accept

Check your Uwaterloo email often, as we will be sending offers soon after you submit an application. Accept your contract offer by clicking the link in the offer email and submit your $500 deposit, which is used to offset your residence term fees. You're all set!
