Which Waterloo residence am I supposed to pick if I'm an Architecture student?

Is there anyone who went to Waterloo, who can tell me what residence/student housing college  I should rank the highest? There's currently: 

    Waterloo Residences 
     Renison University College 
    St. Jerome's University 
    St. Paul's University College

I'm just now sure which is for the Cambridge campus or which is the most beneficial to my situation as their website isn't really helpful.

Not sure what your links have to do with waterloo residences, but please be aware that Official Loo housing on Campus is NOT recommended for the school of architecture since... which should not be a surprise... the school is not within the main university campus (it's a long way between Cambridge and Waterloo).

Your best chance (and only rational option) is to rent a room in a student house in Cambridge (galt) within walking distance to the school. If you've accepted their offer, check out the Loo facebook group and you might be able to find other students to rent a house with. There are also plenty of apartments near the school too if living with other students is not appealing. It's not as daunting as it may seem.... literally everyone is in the same situation (even commuting from Toronto is a terrible idea given the heavy work load).

You can also inquire about the Grand-House. It's the only official architecture student residence in Cambridge.

xD  From what I understand, Waterloo's architecture campus is in another city so forget about living in the main campus or even taking part in university life there ;P

Who cares about the “experience”. Waterloo campus is a whole. Just a bunch of engineers and typical strip mall stuff. The school in Cambridge makes its own “experience” and is damn good if you participate. Besides that, not being in a campus is a small price to pay to attend the best arch school in the country.
