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 pursuing 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!
With gratitude, we acknowledge that Renison University College is located on the traditional territory of the Anishinaabeg, Hodinohsyó:ni, and Attawandaran (Neutral) Peoples, which is situated on the Haldimand Tract, the land granted to the Six Nations that includes ten kilometres on each side of the Grand River from mouth to source. Our active work toward reconciliation takes place in all corners of our campus through research, learning, teaching, community building and outreach. We are guided by the work of our Reconciliation and Re-storying Steering Committee and Anti-Racism and Decolonization Spokescouncil, as well as the University of Waterloo’s Office of Indigenous Relations.
