Once you've applied

When are offers sent?

The date you receive your offer of admission depends on your program, the strength of your application, and entrance requirements.

If you've applied to a Renison program, you can expect to hear from us by April or May.

If you haven't heard anything, it doesn't necessarily mean you haven't gotten in- the University of Waterloo receives thousands of applications, and it takes a while to go through all of them. 

Where do you want to live?

Once you've applied, one of the biggest decisions you'll make next is where to live while working towards your degree. 

Renison offers a tight-knit community experience in our family-style residences and dynamic student life. Our residences house 220 students, welcoming students from all University of Waterloo faculties.

Book Your Tour!

We encourage you to visit our campus to get a feel for our community and residences first-hand.

We offer tours at 10:30 am, 12:30 pm and 2:30 pm.

To book a tour either contact us directly or book through the University of Waterloo Undergraduate Admissions- both will get you to the same place!
