Our Campus
Come home to St. Jerome’s University.

Sitting in the heart of the University of Waterloo campus, we are a public Roman Catholic university federated with the University of Waterloo. Here, teaching excellence and undergraduate education are the highest priorities.


Our lively campus is situated at the centre of the University of Waterloo’s wider campus, on a beautiful 900 acre site in northwest Waterloo. At St. Jerome's University you will find classrooms and community spaces that make up our thriving academic environment to reflect a fresh new design for students to learn, study, and develop. 


St. Jerome’s University offers a wide range of services and spaces for our extended community. Grab a coffee at the Funcken Café before tasting our chef’s latest locally sourced dish in our Servery; study in the calm quiet of the Library or collaborate in one of our study rooms; dig into our Archives for a glimpse into the past; take in a yoga class or get active with some friends in the gym or wellness studios; or plug in your guitar or PlayStation in our games and music rooms. Looking for some reflection time? Stop by the chapel for quiet introspection, or book the creative space to get out some cathartic artistry. Our academic facilities are newly renovated and top-of-the-line: tech enabled, accessible, and bright – perfect for learning and idea generation.
