COVID-19 testing on campus is now available to family members in your household

This message was originally sent to students and employees by president and vice-chancellor Feridun Hamdullahpur.


  • COVID-19 testing is now available on campus to family members living in the same household as University students, employees and postdocs.
  • Remember to get your flu shots.

I’m pleased to share that the campus COVID-19 Testing Assessment Centre at Health Services is now also open to family members of all University of Waterloo students, employees, and postdocs. Family members must be living at the same household/residential address. 

Many in our campus community have expressed the need for this service to be extended, so I am very pleased that groups across campus have worked to make this important step in our COVID-19 response possible.
