As certain campus businesses such as food services are now open, visitors to campus are normally permitted in public areas to receive such services and are expected to follow physical distancing and face covering rules at all times. In other areas, the following criteria apply to visitors to campus:

  • Visiting researchers, industry partners may not access campus research facilities without specific authorization. Please inquire with researchqueries@uwaterloo.ca
  • Non-essential visits to campus for networking, meetings or other purposes are not permitted at this time.
  • University employees bringing contractors to campus must follow the Contractor Guideline.
