The world of work is changing. We’ll navigate it together!

As the COVID-19 situation evolves, we are continuing to work with faculty and campus partners to help you complete your work term and stay on track to fulfill your degree requirements.

Please continue to check the pages below for updates about your work terms, including:

  • Flexible pathways in place to help you complete your work term and maintain your degree requirements
  • Updated hiring and interview procedures to help you search for a job
  • Current University travel policies and remote work guidelines
  • Resources to help you search for work in light of the current climate

If you have any questions or concerns, please send a message to your co-op advisor via WaterlooWorks.

Please note: These changes are in place only for the work terms below in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and will be reviewed each term until no longer required. If your work term is scheduled for after the Fall 2021 term, please stay tuned -- as things continue to develop, we will update both students and employers as necessary.

The University of Waterloo does not provide advice related to vaccines in job postings or in the workplace. We recommend that employers and students with questions on this topic seek their own legal advice.
