From public lectures to signature celebrations such as Canada Day, we're honoured to invite our community to the University of Waterloo.

Come in the Doors Open

Each year as part of Doors Open Waterloo Region we invite our community to join us for a special look inside our buildings and to learn more about what goes on at the University of Waterloo.  At our locations this year Waterloo offers the public the opportunity to step inside our doors and learn about the human eye, see medicinal plants, and explore the last industrial plant built on the Grand River. 

Be sure to visit Waterloo’s School of Architecture, School of Optometry, and School of Pharmacy as we open our doors to the public on Saturday September 20, 2014.

Stargazing at Waterloo

Despite the unpredictable weather the stars aligned and the skies cleared just in time for the University of Waterloo’s annual Perseid Stargazing Party.  Over 200 members of the local community joined Waterloo’s Faculty of Science and local Royal Astronomical Society of Canada members as they hosted a stargazing party at the University’s Columbia Lake Fields.
