Welcome to the Health Computing Office!

We are committed to providing Information Technology (IT) support to faculty, staff, and students in the Faculty of Health at the University of Waterloo.

On this site, we offer information about your accounts, email, printing, software, VPN and other services. You will also find notes from the many courses that we have taught on all aspects of computing.


Effective April 30, 2023, the IST-hosted individual user network drives and related profiles for employees ('fileu' and 'filep') and students ('files' and 'fileq') in the Faculties of Arts, Environment, Health, and Science will no longer be offered.

Postponed: On Monday, January 30, 2023, a one-year retention policy will be implemented for Microsoft Teams Chats (i.e., private 1:1 chats, group chat messages). Posts to a Channel and other Teams data will not be impacted.
