Get involved in our vibrant student community!

At Renison University College, we have a vibrant student experience where everyone belongs. 

Our Renison community includes degree students studying in our Social Development Studies program, School of Social Work, Culture and Language Studies courses, as well as our credit-free courses and English Language Institute. We are also proud to have our own Renison Residence!

Renison University College's residence is centrally located on the University of Waterloo campus. With just over 200 residents from all six of Waterloo's faculties, Renison's residence has become known for its small, intimate, and family-like community of residents making it an ideal place for incoming students transitioning to university life. Come and be a part of the family!

Joining our close-knit community means benefiting from outstanding opportunities for learning and scholarship through an interactive and inclusive environment. Students in residence live in truly a multicultural environment, where they will develop awareness, knowledge and skills for a globalized world.
