The University of Waterloo Open Data API allows anyone to query for publicly released data that comes from authoritative sources and systems. The API features core academic, campus, and student information and continues to expand as we build relationships with data stewards. We're also looking forward to delivering a crowd sourced API service under a different data guarantee in the future.

Updates are available on our Confluence space and the Open Data website.
