2017 is a year of many campus celebrations! Notable anniversaries include not only the University itself (60 years), but also Co-operative Education and the faculty of Engineering (both 60 years), the Federation of Students, the faculties of Mathematics and Applied Health Sciences, including the department of Kinesiology, (all 50 years), and the Hong Kong Alumni Association (40 years).60th Anniversary Image Bank

Special Collections & Archives is pleased to share with you the University of Waterloo Archives Image Bank database.  You can search more than 2,000 historic photographs from the University of Waterloo Archives and the Kitchener-Waterloo Record Photographic Negative Collection all documenting life on campus from 1957 to 1994.

We hope you enjoy this wonderful selection of images. Please contact us with any questions or if you require assistance using the University of Waterloo Archives Image Bank database.
