Waterloo Residences acknowledges that we live and work on the traditional territory of the Neutral, Anishinaabeg, and Haudenosaunee peoples. The University of Waterloo is situated on the Haldimand Tract, the land promised to the Six Nations that includes ten kilometers on each side of the Grand River.
Waterloo Residences offers the best of both worlds!
Whether you're looking for quiet study spaces and a room to call your own, or to maximize shared space and social opportunities, you'll have the chance to live independently while building meaningful connections that could last a lifetime. Residence is more than just four walls and a bed, it is an experience. Check out the amenities, photos, and virtual tour videos on the pages below to learn what experiences await you in each of our residences.
