Waterloo Indigenous Student Centre
The Waterloo Indigenous Student Centre (WISC) is located at United College. They work to share Indigenous knowledge and provide culturally relevant information and support services within the University of Waterloo community, including Indigenous and non-Indigenous students, faculty and staff.
Indigenous Student Association
The Indigenous Student Association (ISA) is located within the Waterloo Indigenous Student Centre (WISC) and is a student run collective that supports the needs and interests of Indigenous undergraduate and graduate students on campus.
Indigenous Residence Community
In the Indigenous Living Learning Community, you will have easy access to our Waterloo Indigenous Students Centre (WISC) right in the same building! You will be connected with a group of other Indigenous students in United College to form meaningful relationships. Your Peer Leader will be another Indigenous student at the University of Waterloo who can support your experience as a first-year student and help you to access Indigenous supports on and off campus. You will also have the opportunity to engage in Indigenous events and socials to connect with your culture and bond with others through shared experience.
Aises in Canada
AISES in Canada (the Canadian branch of AISES – American Indian Science and Engineering Society) is an organization focused on supporting and creating a community for Indigenous, Métis, and Inuit students in STEM. The AISES chapter at UWaterloo invites any students in STEM or STEM-adjacent fields to join and meet other Indigenous students at our school and beyond, and help grow themselves professionally as well as academically.
