St. Paul’s has single, super single, and double dorm rooms, as well as upper-year suites with kitchens and private bathrooms. We are located right on Waterloo's main campus and we're open to students from any faculty studying at the University of Waterloo.

St. Paul's is part of the University's guaranteed residence commitment, which means that you're guaranteed a residence spot if you're an incoming first-year student. When you apply to UWaterloo, you will get information on how to rank your residence choices.

We also offer some specialized communities: the Environment Living-Learning Community, the Social Impact Living-Learning Community, a new Women in Engineering Living-Learning Community, St. Paul's GreenHouse, and a French residence floor.
