COVID-19 update

We understand there is a lot of uncertainty and concern among our graduate students. We want to reassure all our students that we are here to support you as we travel this unchartered territory together. 

Health and safety continues to be our primary focus as we navigate the changing realities of education and research during a global pandemic. The University has been working diligently to prepare a safe and gradual return, informed by public health advice and best practices.

View the Welcome Back Waterloo Guide for an outline of the university's plans and steps you can take as you prepare to return. We encourage you to continue to check the COVID-19 web page for official updates and information specific to graduate students. Before you seek permission for access to campus, make sure you read COVID-19 and your research.

There are various resources available to support you. When contacting your coordinator or supervisors, it is best done through electronic means. If you require non-academic support, you can contact Campus Wellness. There are also helpline resources available: Good2Talk (1-866-925-5454) or EmpowerMe (1-844-741-6389).
