As the University of Waterloo responds to the COVID-19 pandemic, the well-being of our students, their families, and our campus community is our top priority. It is with great disappointment that we will not be holding any in-person ceremonies in June 2020. These are extraordinary times, and we do not make this decision lightly. Please refer to the convocation home page for more details.
