Residence Council

ResCouncil

 

The mission of the University of Waterloo Residence Council is to represent the interests of the residents by creating a greater sense of community through facilitating social and educational events.

Residence Council is a group of students who live in Waterloo Residences, working together to represent the interests and needs of all residents. Members are very involved and take an active role in making residence a fun and exciting place to live.

General meetings occur every Tuesday (starting May 15th) at 10:15 p.m, in the:

  • CMH Great Hall
 
 
 

Why should I join ResCouncil?

 

All residents are invited to get involved and to come to Council meetings to propose and plan events. There are so many reasons to join, but here are the top 5:

  1. You'll meet new friends from all over residence
  2. You can help plan great events (we have a budget for events and you’ll get a say in how it’s spent!)
  3. You’ll develop great skills (like communication and event planning) and it looks great on a resume (co-op anyone?)
  4. It's not a huge time commitment (a one-hour meeting every week)
  5. ResCouncil is a great first step to getting involved on campus (past ResCouncil members have gone on to become Orientation leaders, Residence Life staff, and even Feds Executives!)

How do I join ResCouncil?

 

Area Representatives are selected at the first community meetings with your Residence Life Don. There is one floor representative to represent each Don community. The Area Representatives make up the General Council.

Area Representatives:

  • Represent their community at Residence Council Meetings
  • Attend and actively participate in all meetings
  • Help in the planning, promotion and organization of building events
  • Attend all events and take on responsibilities for executing the events
