About Waterloo

Acknowledgment of traditional territory

We acknowledge that the University of Waterloo is located on the traditional territory of the Neutral, Anishnaabeg and Haudenosaunee people. 

Beyond is where we begin

Waterloo goes beyond the classroom, to a place where experience is the teacher. Beyond problems to solutions that address social, technical and economic needs. Beyond the laboratory, to the research that propels industries, organizations and society.

Waterloo is at the forefront of innovation and is home to transformational research and inspired learning. Located in the heart of Canada's technology hub, we are growing a network of global partnerships that will shape the future by working beyond disciplines and building bridges with industry, institutions and communities.

Our incredible people and partners take us beyond the lives we're living today, to find solutions to the global challenges that lie ahead. Creating change that goes beyond the status quo and is felt around the world.

Waterloo goes beyond—to challenge, connect and propel our world.
