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

Getting festive with holiday giving

Making a difference in our community is important to the University of Waterloo, and with the holiday season now in tow, Waterloo recognizes this vital and special time of year for giving back. Every December, our students, faculty and staff across several faculties and departments collaborate to support an array of festive initiatives.

Residing in a Canadian city during the winter months can bring about diverse challenges for families in need, such as a lack of warm clothing and appropriate winter gear, or facing the struggle of not having enough food or funds to buy toys for children.

Feds Student Food Bank Remembers

Years ago, when she walked through the Student Life Centre (SLC) and spotted the Federation of Students’ Food Bank, Laura realized that some undergraduates on campus need support to eat regular, balanced meals. The Feds Student Food Bank provides free non-perishable food items, and use of it is confidential.
