New co-op fee amount confirmed for 2020/21

It’s official: the new co-op fee amount of $734 for the 2020/21 fiscal year has been confirmed by UWaterloo’s Board of Governors.

The new $734 amount was first announced earlier this year as a result of our annual financial analysis and fee setting process, which recommended a 0.7% increase to the former $729 fee amount given our existing and forecasted budget.
