Waterloo, now a twin city of Kitchener, is collectively known with Kitchener as "Kitchener Waterloo," or affectionately by its residents as "K-W". Waterloo's southern section of King Street entitled "Uptown Waterloo" leads directly into Downtown Kitchener, almost unnoticeably, with the street's fabric continuing dispite municipal boundaries. Waterloo is known primarily for being the home of a prestigious Canadian University - the University of Waterloo - and also its technology industry, being home to high tech companies like Blackberry.
