This page is always up to date with all current library service and resource offerings.

The University of Waterloo Library is committed to being a supportive partner in learning, research and innovation as we continue to navigate the COVID-19 pandemic. Working closely with the University and following public health directives, the Library has adjusted our services and resources to support library users as safely, consistently and equitably as possible. 

With the University of Waterloo transitioning back to in-person learning, library users have access to physical collections at all library locations with expanded hours for studying and support. Masks must be worn in library spaces and appointments may be required to access some resources and support.

If you have questions about access to the Library, feel free to email me at

Beth Namachchivaya, University Librarian

Please note: Masks must be worn when entering library spaces, and other safety protocols will be observed. Please read the University of Waterloo’s instructions for visiting campus prior to visiting our libraries.
