Where will I live?

IDEAS will help you gain a taste of campus life at one of Canada's best universities. You'll live in an university residence and share your experience with your new roommate.

In residence, you'll have access to

  • trained mentors available 24 hours a day to provide any assistance you need
  • unlimited high-speed wireless to keep in touch with friends and family
  • dining hall where you can share meals with your new friends
  • meditation room for quiet time and self-reflection
  • television lounge
  • a twin-sized bed
  • all linens and towel
  • air conditioning

Kudos to the IDEAS team. My son is very excited about what he did at Waterloo… and I’m happy I put him in the right place for 2 weeks.
