Graduate House

The Graduate House is a business/service housed in the original farmhouse on the south campus of the University of Waterloo. Owned and operated by the Graduate Student Association (GSA), the Graduate House facilitates gatherings and services for Graduate Students. In addition, the Graduate House is popular restaurant destination for the ENTIRE University of Waterloo community.

The Graduate House has a relaxed and inviting atmosphere. The upper lounge is a great spot for marking papers, celebrating a thesis defense, holding a small presentation or hosting a small social gathering. The fully licensed boardroom is perfect for meetings and small private gatherings.  The outdoor rooftop patio is a nice place to unwind and enjoy fresh air.  The large main floor features a multi-functional room for medium sized gatherings, live music and larger presentations. The main bar area is an excellent place to drop in to connect with old and new friends.
