    Proud to be working with Alumni Relations and the Centre for Career Action on a pilot program to help over 180 upper-year students with career advice, financial tips, and other life hacks.

  2. Oct. 5, 2017Residence staff complete safety walks around communitiesResidence staff on a safety walk

    On October 3 and 4, Residence Life, Residence Facilities, Police Services and the Safety office completed safety walks around our housing communities.

    The safety walk is an examination of all exterior walkways and physical landscape around our residences to ensure all areas are safe.

    The University of Waterloo completed a CPTED (Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design) study which suggests best practices for enhancing community safety.

    Waterloo Residences conducts these walks to assess lighting, natural landscape issues, slip / trip hazards and more.
