Housing Accommodations

Note: Depending on when you apply, we may not have spaces available to meet your needs.

If you require special housing accommodations as a result of a documented disability you will be required to complete a Housing Disability Verification form with your medical professional. Accessible Housing is available through Waterloo Residences and we encourage students to complete the registration process to help us understand your needs.
