About the Graduate House

Graduate House

The Graduate House occupies the original farmhouse (Schweitzer Farmhouse) on the south campus of the University of Waterloo. Affectionately known as the Grad House, the operations are owned by the Graduate Student Association (GSA). The Graduate House is a hub for graduate students and their guests in a relaxed social space. It is a popular destination for the entire University of Waterloo community, where patrons can enjoy a home-cooked meal, meet with their peers and colleagues or just spend some time away from the office or lab.

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 where grad focused activities are held. The main bar area is an excellent place to drop in to connect with old and new friends.


And, of course, feel free to contact us.
