Live where you learn

More than just a place to sleep, residence will increase your chances of academic success by giving you access to all the best resources the campus has to offer, while also introducing you to friends and lots of fun experiences.

Waterloo Residences acknowledges that we live and work on the traditional territory of ‎the Neutral, Anishinaabeg, and Haudenosaunee peoples. The University of Waterloo is situated on the Haldimand Tract, the land promised to the Six Nations that includes ten kilometers on each side of the Grand River.
