Our Waterloo campus is located in the thriving, culturally diverse community of Kitchener-Waterloo (KW). The campus is located in the heart of the city and is down the street from the University of Waterloo – this "university town" has great dining, recreational and entertainment options for students.
Located one hour west of Toronto with a population of about 365,000, KW is small enough to be safe and easy to get around, yet large enough to support the amenities and culture of a big city.
KW is part of Waterloo Region, which is home to the largest grouping of technology companies in North America outside California. Our community has a reputation for innovation and it is where tech giant BlackBerry got its start. Communitech, an internationally recognized incubator that helps tech companies start, grow and succeed, calls Waterloo home, as do Desire2Learn, Sandvine, Open Text, Google, Oracle, Intel, McAfee, Sybase, NCR Corporation, Electronic Arts and Christie Digital.
Best of the City: Dining
It's hard to explain what it means to be a Golden Hawk without meeting us in person. No matter which of our campuses you tour, once you come you'll immediately feel this "community" we keep talking about.
