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, Human rights, Religious studies and Canadian studies.

At St. Paul's you can also find the Waterloo Indigenous Student Centre, and GreenHouse, a social impact incubator that offers programs, opportunities and a community for students to develop problem solving skills, to form innovative ideas and make new forms of sustainable impact around social or environmental change.

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 (LLC), the Women in Engineering LLC, the Math FARM LLC, the French Residents Floor and the Waterloo Indigenous Student Residence
