Join the co-op community

 

You will have support from your Peer Leader - an upper-year co-op student who has knowledge about the co-op process and ability to connect you with the people and resources within Co-operative Education and Career Action (CECA). This community will help you:

  • Receive guidance
  • Build professional networks 
  • Connect you with peers, industry professionals, and on-campus resources 
 

Activities and Events

 

The events from this community are done in collaboration with industry partners. Examples of previous events include: 

  • Resume Critique Event

Participating Companies

 

Employers are essential to the Co-op Living-Learning Community. Each company that has partnered with Living-Learning will have an opportunity to connect, mentor and advise students within the community. Each event will provide company representatives and students an opportunity to connect through one-on-one, small group and large group interactions.

About UW Place residence

 

The Engineering Co-op Community will be located in UW Place. Students who select the Engineering Co-op Community will have the opportunity to rank their preference between 3 different room types:

 
UWP Residence

Single room in a UW Place suite

New Residence Building

Single or semi-private room in the New Residence Building

 

Please note that selecting the Engineering Co-op Community guarantees you a place in the community, it does not guarantee that you will receive your first choice of room type.  Many students select the same room type and there are only so many rooms available to the Engineering Co-op Community.  Therefore, it is impossible to guarantee every student their first choice.
