We have a home for you! Be one of the students who live on La Bastille, the only french floor residence in the university of waterloo. You don’t have to be fluent — you just have to love the language and culture!

Peer Leaders

Faculty Peer Leaders are upper-year students in the various Faculties who will be living in or visiting the Living-Learning Community they are associated with at St. Paul's on a regular basis. Peer Leaders will provide students with academic support, put them in touch with professors, run academic-based events, and help students figure out what classes to take in future terms.


At St. Paul's, the most energetic, fun-loving, knowledgeable upper-year undergraduate students are selected as Dons to join the residence life team. There are nine Dons in the Fall and Winter terms, and two in the Spring term. There is also a Community Animator who supports the GreenHouse students.

During the year, Dons will organize fun events for the residence, provide you with information about the services available on campus and will show you how to access them. Since we have a Don on every floor, you only have to walk down the hall if you want to chat.
