Just because you live off campus, doesn't mean you shouldn't still take advantage of all the great opportunities uWaterloo has to offer!
The Off Campus Dons is a FEDS run service in which we aim to serve as mentors for students living off-campus for their first year at the University of Waterloo.
Students register with us on the first day of Orientation Week, after registering with their faculty and receiving a wrist band for the week. Each student registered is paired with an upper-year student, their Don.
During the year, Dons will continue to contact these first year students by e-mail, updating them on events being held and opportunities around campus!
Even though you are not living in residence, you can still purchase an off-campus meal plan from Food Services and eat on-campus at discounted rates.
Food Services also has agreements with many off-campus vendors to make purchases, such as food, haircuts and taxi services, with your meal plan money.
