Be at the centre of innovation
There’s no better way to attract the brightest talent, collaborate with renowned researchers, and connect to game-changing startups than to be located right on the campus of Canada’s most innovative university.
Located on the north campus of the University of Waterloo, R+T Park puts your company in the middle of everything. Tap into Canada’s largest co-operative education program, connect with tech founders at the Accelerator Centre and Velocity, and get a first-hand look at the breakthroughs that will shape the future.
A Hub of Activity
Not only is R+T Park located right on campus, but it’s also right in the heart of the action in Waterloo Region.
Need a break? There are over five kilometres of walking and biking trails connecting to a 250-acre environmental reserve and Columbia Lake. Planning a lunch meeting? Hop on the ION light rail transist system and you’re at the shops and restaurants of Uptown Waterloo and Downtown Kitchener in minutes. Feeling the need for some physical activity?
