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

Celebrate #UWEarthWeek

The University of Waterloo is committed to having a positive impact on the environment, which is why we’ve launched a brand new #UWEarthWeek campaign to celebrate our sustainability successes and our plans going forward.

UWaterloo has a wide range of sustainability efforts – from LEED certified buildings, recycling initiatives, and alternative transportation programs. Earth Week (April 20-24, 2015) is designed to highlight these achievements, increase awareness of environmental issues, and inspire ongoing sustainable behaviour. 

We invite you to join us at various events this week and help make a difference on our campus and in our community.

Real Warriors Wear Pink

The end of November marks the wrap up of Waterloo's annual Think Pink campaign lead by our department of athletics and recreation.  In its 7th year, Think Pink raises awareness and funds for breast cancer research with all funds going to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation, Ontario division.   

Think Pink began as an initiative by Waterloo's Women's Basketball team and in just seven years has expanded to include multiple varsity teams, recreational activities, and other fundraising events engaging the entire University community. 

Spreading kindness in our community with #UWaterlooRAK

On November 7, 2014 the University of Waterloo teamed up with The Kitchener and Waterloo Community Foundation and our Federation of Students to spread kindness on our campus and in the community. #UWaterlooRAK day saw hundreds of students, staff, faculty, and community members giving and receiving random acts of kindness.  Some of the activities included sharing kindness treats, gratitude and thank you card stations, exemptions on parking violations, the collection of winter wearables for those in need, toiletry donations for the Out of the Cold program, kindness encounters with Tony the Tiger and King Warrior, and a local community clean-up.

UWaterloo Goes Red for United Way

October 1st signaled the launch of Waterloo’s annual United Way workplace campaign and saw the University going red for the United Way.  This year our fundraising goal is set at $250,000, and will include funds raised through individual donations, campus events, and activities lead by departments and groups at Waterloo.
