Waterloo Orientation will run August 31 - September 7, 2019. 

Orientation is your official welcome to campus. During Orientation, you’ll have the opportunity to connect with your future classmates, get to know your campus, experience your unique faculty community, and learn about what UWaterloo has to offer.

As a Waterloo Warrior, you’re joining a network of current students, alumni, professors, and staff at Canada’s most innovative university. We have activities planned to help you feel right at home!

Orientation is a shared partnership between the Federation of Students, the Student Success Office, and the six faculties.
