Welcome to St. Paul's!

St. Paul's University College offers residence, academic courses, and learning opportunities to students at the University of Waterloo. We are affiliated with the University and are located on its main campus.

St. Paul's purpose is to support the University of Waterloo community by providing a unique learning environment that educates social innovators to shape a just and humane world.

University of Waterloo courses are taught at St. Paul's, including courses in International Development, the Master of Development Practice program, Indigenous studies, Religious studies and Canadian studies.

The Waterloo Indigenous Student Centre is also located at St. Paul's.

Many Waterloo students – both undergraduate and graduate – choose to live at St. Paul's. Some come here for the community, some for the learning experience, and some to be part of special opportunities like the Environment Living-Learning Community, the Women in Engineering Living-Learning Community, or GreenHouse.

    St. Paul’s Wraps Up AnotherTerrific United Way Campaign

    St. Paul’s University College has once again demonstrated its commitment to the local community by concluding a remarkably successful United Way campaign.

    “Our university is strongly supported by the community in which it’s located” says St. Paul’s Principal Richard Myers.  “And there’s no better way to show our appreciation of the local community than through donations to the regional United Way.”

    The College set a fund-raising goal of $3,200 with a “stretch” goal of $3,800.  The final total for the St. Paul’s was an amazing $4,630.
