We acknowledge that our work is on the traditional territory of the Neutral, Anishinaabeg and Haudenosaunee peoples. Our institution is situated on the Haldimand Tract, the land promised to the Six Nations that includes six miles on each side of the Grand River. Our active work toward reconciliation takes place across our campuses through research, learning, teaching, and community building, and is centralized within our Indigenous Initiatives Office.
University of Waterloo Food Services (UWFS) provides a range of products and services to students, faculty, staff, and the broader community through the operation of 24 outlets. The department includes residence cafeterias, cash operations outlets, franchises, Catering Services, Conference Services, vending and a fine dining outlet at the University Club.
The department provides meal plans, food-related wellness and nutritional programs, in addition to a range of initiatives supporting student life, diversity and culture.
UWFS is a self-operated ancillary service; not a common format for todays’ institutions. As a key stakeholder in student services, UWFS strives to create and cultivate a comprehensive service that promotes a healthy, sustainable university environment.
