Construction begins on new student residence at Waterloo

WATERLOO, Ont. (Monday, June 22, 2015) — A ceremony to mark the official start of construction of a new residence for undergraduate students at the University of Waterloo will take place this week.

Once complete, the new residence will house more than 500 students, and will enable the University to continue to offer its first-year housing guarantee for undergraduate students.

The innovative, student-focused design is a result of an extensive consultation process with stakeholders to help ensure a happy and productive living environment for its residents.
