Waterloo Residences

Waterloo Residences offers a variety of different housing options to meet the needs of all students.

There are four main types of residences:

  • traditional
  • townhouse
  • apartment
  • suite-style

Traditional residences are the most common type of on-campus housing; they typically consist of double or single rooms with shared bathrooms and common areas. Townhouses are similar to traditional residences, but they usually have more bedrooms and bathrooms in each house. Apartments are available for upper-year students and typically have a shared kitchen, living room, and one or two bedrooms. Suite-style residences are similar to apartments but often have private bathrooms and more than one bedroom.
