The Village at University Gates Review
250 Laurelwood Drive, Waterloo, Ontario, N2J 0E2
This new 230 suite development opens an exciting opportunity for Waterloo-Wellington and area seniors seeking to get in on the ground floor of a great community. You’ll be onsite at University of Waterloo, benefiting from the expertise of Schlegel Villages and their work with the Research Institute for Aging.
Other Schlegel Villages in the area offer a glimpse of what life will be like here. Walk into any other location, and you’ll find friends interacting happily, supported by the village design and layout (featuring a Town Square and more). With this being close to the campus at UW, as well as Laurel Creek Conservation, you’ll have nature, learning and friends all just outside the door.
This community began as exclusively long term care, which will still be a key part of the Village. The spectrum of options will include both assisted living and memory care. This will make it ideal for couples with different care needs to remain together in the same community, if one spouse is independent, but the other requires care. It’s also ideal for families and seniors who anticipate shifting care needs in the future. You won’t need to move again.

What people say about this community
A special thanks to the staff of University Gates for their compassion and attention to my grandmother’s care and happiness during her time here.
My mom has been a resident at UG since it opened — very pleased with the home, environment and the staff!! Top notch facility with dedicated caring staff — wouldn’t want my mom anywhere else — they are taking wonderful care of our precious gem.
