Faculty of Mathematics Tour

The Faculty of Mathematics is home to 1,100 graduate students and 288 faculty members. Our professors, students, and institutes explore a broad range of areas and ideas in math and computer science – from foundational theory to applied research and commercial solutions. Take a look at the resources below to learn more about the Faculty, campus life, and the City of Waterloo.

Campus Tour

We look forward to seeing you on campus in the near future. In the meantime, take a look at Waterloo's campus map which is an interactive tool that allows you to find buildings, as well as parking, transit, and places to eat. If you want to find out more about what's on campus, watch the video as Justine Salam, PhD candidate in Global Governance, tours the campus and highlights graduate student spaces and resources at the University of Waterloo.

City of Waterloo Tour

The University of Waterloo is located in Southern Ontario, in the city of Waterloo, 100 km west of Toronto. Our campus is home to state-of-the-art research and teaching labs, media labs, collaborative spaces, and some great coffee!
