Lucinda House, located at 157 Albert Street in Waterloo, Ontario, is part of the Wilfrid Laurier University campus. The house was built in 1838 by Waterloo’s first medical doctor Joseph Good. It was renovated by Allen and Lucinda Shantz, who lived in the house from 1896 to 1948, but the structure of the house remained the same. Wilfrid Laurier University gained possession of Lucinda House in 1994, and uses the building for social events and lodging.

Wilfrid Laurier University is located in Waterloo, Ontario. It began in 1911 as the Evangelical Lutheran Seminary of Canada. In 1924 Waterloo College was established, providing courses in post-secondary education. In 1960 Waterloo College became Waterloo Lutheran University, and in 1973 changed its name to Wilfrid Laurier University.
