Enjoy all inclusive living and flexible, academic term-based contracts at Waterloo - no worries, no hassles.
Straight-out-of-high school or new to post-secondary education? If you have been admitted to a first-year program at UWaterloo, then you are an incoming first-year undergraduate student.
Looking for the convenience, safety, and community of living on campus? Our residences are all inclusive, close to classes, and offer ongoing academic support.

Exchange students must be officially accepted to UWaterloo through an affiliated exchange program before they will be offered a Waterloo Residences contract.
Exchange undergrad applications
If you are a current UWaterloo student with live-in dependents (spouse/partner and/or children), you are eligible to live in our family residence at Columbia Lake Village-North (CLV-North).
