Partner and connect with Waterloo

Community investment and sponsorship

The University of Waterloo has a rich history of being engaged in our community.

Waterloo considers opportunities that respond to the needs of our community, advance our overall strategic plan and allow the university to be actively engaged in our community. We are interested in partnerships with non-profit and charitable organizations and sponsorship of community events and initiatives that empower people with the skills, tools and information they need to make our community stronger.

The University will consider sponsorships that:

  • Support the development and maintenance of the University of Waterloo’s programs and services

  • Promote and raise awareness of the University of Waterloo in the community

  • Advance community partnerships that align with Community Relations goals

If your sponsorship request meets these guidelines, we’d like to hear from you.
