University of waterloo res

I cant decide which residence to go to. The main things I care about are:
-low noise level (hate studying with noise)
-good social life (i assume I could always visit other residences for parties as well though)
-preferably a meal plan (does UWP have an optional meal plan?)

Thanks guys :)

All of the suite-style residences (MKV, UWP, CLV) have optional meal plans. I also believe you can purchase the optional meal plans if you are living off-campus.

If you can't study with noise then your best bet is to just go to the library. But if you absolutely want to study quietly in your room but really want a traditional style then go for V1 at least then you have a chance at getting a single or interconnecting room.

Noise Level - UWP, V1, MKV are all dead quiet
Social Life - Every res has parties, REV has more, and it all depends what kinds of friends you make
Meal plan - you can get a meal plan with all suite-style residences

in your opinions whats better, UWP or V1. I'm an engineering student if that helps.

It really comes down to whether you want a traditional style residence or an apartment style.

Though UWP would be closer to more of your classes.....
