Renison University College

If you're looking for a small, close-knit residence or academic home base that is a five-minute walk to most buildings at the University of Waterloo, then Renison may be for you!

Renison is a smaller community with its own character and distinctive programs where you can get involved. For students purusing a University of Waterloo degree, you can live and study at Renison while having access to all of the services and facilities on the main Waterloo campus. Think of it like a small, friendly neighbourhood, within a larger city - it's the best of both worlds!

Territorial Acknowledgement

Renison University College acknowledges that our work is on the traditional territory of ‎ the Neutral, Anishinaabeg and Haudenosaunee peoples. Our institution is situated on the Haldimand Tract, the land promised to the Six Nations that includes six miles on each side of the Grand River. Our active work toward reconciliation takes place across our campuses through research, learning, teaching, community building and outreach, and is centralized within the work of our Truth and Reconciliation Working Group and the University of Waterloo’s Indigenous Initiatives Office

  3. May 6, 2021Renison’s Sakura Japanese Language School Celebrates 10th Anniversary

    When we think about a typical Saturday afternoon for a Renison student, we might think of late-risers getting up for lunch in the Renison cafeteria. On Saturday afternoons, however, instead of young adults strolling through the atrium, you may see a crowd of young children. They are getting ready to participate in the Sakura Japanese Language School, which is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year. Since April of 2020, Sakura students have been studying online and this milestone, like many over the past year, was marked by a special online event last weekend.
