Alumni weekend 2020

Alumni Weekend

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, the University of Waterloo is taking steps to limit the spread and risks of the disease in our community. With caution and concern for our alumni, we have made the difficult decision to move Alumni Weekend and Alumni Black and Gold Day events online.

Some Alumni Weekend events will now take place online on September 25 and 26, 2020. It will be held in conjunction with Alumni Black and Gold Day.


We honour all alumni celebrating a milestone anniversary — 5-55 years — or a class reunion.

At this event:

  • 25, 50 & 55-year Anniversary Lunch
  • Faculty programming
  • Networking

Save the date for Alumni Weekend 2021 and beyond.

While we can’t reconnect in the way we planned, we hope you will join us for the virtual events on September 25 and 26, 2020. Due to event changes, registration is temporarily closed but will reopen in July. We hope you will join us virtually this fall by registering for the new events.

At this event:

  • Virtual Fun Run
  • Alumni Weekend Faculty events
  • And more!
