Information for

Grebel students and parents

Leaving your son or daughter at university for the first time can be exciting and challenging all at once.

First year students are greeted on move-in day by a group of upper year students who have planned a week full of fun ways to get to know one another and their campus better.

Our Student Services office works hard to keep their finger on the pulse of what's happening in the residence. Residence life is supervised by our wonderful team of Dons and Campus Hosts, all orchestrated by our excellent Student Services staff members.


Grebel is a family place!  

"When I left rural Saskatchewan, Grebel was a place where friends lived and worked together as we came to understand big ideas. I have been happy to see that same community of faith and friends for my daughter.”

- Geraldine Balzer

"To the Staff and Volunteers at Conrad Grebel,

This past Saturday afternoon and evening was a wonderful time for our family as we experienced a Taste of Grebel! Our hearts were warmed and we realized the privilege our child has to be in your care. Until recently, we were not familiar with Conrad Grebel University College or with the University of Waterloo. We have come to appreciate you very much. On Saturday, we found everything from the opening session to the activities on the patio, from the chapel and classroom samplers to the talent show and delicious dinner, to be well organized, thoughtful and enjoyable. Your attention to detail and your determination to carry it out is to be commended for a job well done."
