We're continuing to take steps to limit the spread of COVID-19 in our community and are monitoring impacts of the pandemic (including school closures). We continue to review applications for admission as usual and anticipate having the grades we need to make admission decisions in the vast majority of cases. We understand that factors outside of your control may affect your ability to provide us with updated information. You will not be penalized for that and we are accounting for that in our admission decisions.

Ontario’s universities and the Ontario Universities’ Application Centre are monitoring the impact of school closures due to COVID-19. As a result of these closures, there may be a delay in the OUAC receiving your grades.

Learn more on our common admissions questions or visit the university's main coronavirus information website for further details.

Visitors Centre

Thank you for interest in the University of Waterloo!

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the Visitors Centre is closed until further notice and tours have been suspended.

We understand that as a prospective student you might still have questions about Waterloo. Here are ways you can connect.

If you would like to book a campus tour when they resume, just let us know and we'll email you once the Visitors Centre reopens. We look forward to welcoming you when we can.
