A Great University Town
Each September the population of Waterloo increases by more than 50,000 as students move back for another school year. With Laurier, University of Waterloo and Conestoga College all centralized to University Avenue it truly becomes a student run city!

Aside from the attractive nature of a student attractive neighbourhood; which includes great restaurants, shops and nightlife; Waterloo boasts many other great qualities including:

- Arts and Culture; including Oktoberfest, KW Symphony, Waterloo Art Gallery and a Live Theatre

- Technology; Waterloo was named the Most Intelligent Community in 2007 as it is the home to RIM, Sunlife Financial and the Perimeter Institute

- Athletics and Recreation; dozens of golf courses, hiking trails, rivers, fitness facilities and Chicopee Ski Resort

- Convenience; Waterloo is only 1 hour away from Toronto and has its very own International Airport (not that you would ever want to leave this great city!)
