Tell us your plans for fall term

Update for international students

The start of the term is fast approaching and the University has created a form to check-in on your plans for fall term. The form is mandatory for all international students and asks about your travel history and plans - including your quarantine plan (if applicable). By filling out the form, we can all comply with the Government of Canada and University of Waterloo health guidelines related to COVID-19 and help keep each other safe.
