Welcome UNIS Faculty and Staff

Steps away from UNIS, Waterside has long been called home for members of the UNIS community – a home that is literally an elevator ride and a quick walk to the UNIS campus.

  • Special pricing pursuant to an arrangement between Waterside & UNIS
  • No credit check
  • No social security number needed for internationals
  • No security deposit

Waterside amenities include:
