Welcome to Renison

Renison University College is located at the heart of the University of Waterloo campus, in the city of Waterloo, Ontario, Canada.

Book your tour

Visiting a campus and taking a guided tour is the best way to see everything and have all your questions answered.

You can book Renison tours through the University of Waterloo Campus Tour Booking Site! By booking through the University of Waterloo, you’ll get a tour that will show you not only Renison, but its relationship to the University of Waterloo.

If none of the available times work for you, or if you would prefer to book a Renison-specific tour, you can also do so through the Renison Tour Registration form and we’ll be happy to schedule a personal tour. 

We look forward to showing you around!

If you can't make it to campus for a tour, check out the Renison Residence Tour on our YouTube channel!

You can also view the University of Waterloo's campus photos, and two video tours- a GoPro Campus Tour and a Virtual Campus Tour!
