Based on feedback from our members and students on the cost of hotel
accommodations we have partnered this year with the residences at Wilfrid
Laurier University to provide a more economical choice.
While the residences will serve as our official accommodation partner should
you wish to stay a hotel we also have secured event rates at the 2 closest
Hotel properties (details below).
All rooms are basic “residence” style, Lockable bedroom with single bed,
desk, chest of drawers, etc… and come with a basic pillow and bed linens.
Totally nothing fancy but gets the job done and is way cheaper than
conference hotels, saving you some student association funds you can use to
plan killer events this year!
Your mom just called and wanted us to remind you that the residences
are just a short walk to the Student Life Summit events, so plan to bring your
flats along with any fancy shoes to save your blisters. You will be outside in
Ontario spring so sometimes it rains, bring a jacket! Finally, this is residence
baby! Bring your own toiletries, hair dryer, etc… (added benefit - save the
planet from those little plastic bottles!)
Apartment style (260 Regina Street, Waterloo) – each bedroom has its own
bathroom/shower, so that’s better than most residences! Each “apartment”
contains five bedrooms, along with a kitchen and living room. Kitchen has
fridge! So also nice, right?
Here’s the hook, because space is limited you must book at least 3 people to
reserve a whole apartment for your delegates. If you have less than 3, you
can either team up with another school and make your reservation, and split
the costs between you, or let us know you are open to sharing with another
school. Again, everyone has their own bedroom and bathroom so lots of
space to get ready in the morning.
If you need rooms for more than 5 delegates, please fill in a reservation form
(link below) for each apartment indicating the names of your delegates who
will be staying in which apartment.
Another option is Dormitory style (200 King Street North, Waterloo -
limited availability) – Private bedrooms with semi-private washrooms.
Shared lounges with a fridge and stove are available on each floor. There is
no minimum number of rooms you need to book in here.

Note: You are responsible for your own parking, and travel
to the conference site should you choose to stay off site.
