It is with deep sadness that the University of Waterloo community learned of the loss of one of its students, Ambar Roy, a first-year student in the Faculty of Environment.

Ambar went missing in the Spring of 2019 near Iqaluit.

The University has reached out to Ambar’s family to offer its condolences and support and stands ready to give them any assistance we can provide. A funeral service for Ambar will be held in Toronto on March 7.

Support is available on and off-campus and we encourage any students, faculty or staff who feel they need of assistance to contact services on campus or in the community.
