Arts peer mentors and other resources for your well-being

Feeling overwhelmed with university? Finding it hard to manage your time? Have questions about your program or major?

Contact a Faculty of Arts peer mentor! If you have questions or concerns, and don't know who to talk to, an upper year mentor will be happy to help.

Good2Talk is a free, confidential helpline providing professional counselling and information and referrals for mental health, addictions and well-being to post-secondary students in Ontario.

We also have a fuller listing of on- and off-campus resources that you can print and keep handy.

Academic responsibility

Academics at university can be complex. Correctly citing the ideas and words of others, ensuring that group work is undertaken responsibly and that the division of labour and degree of collaboration is within the boundaries prescribed by the instructor, will certainly require more attention and care than what you are accustomed to in high school.

In courses requiring essay assignments or written reports, be sure that you understand what plagiarism is and how to avoid it.  The Faculty of Arts provides a more detailed explanation of plagiarism and other writing offences.

Student portal

The university has developed a student portal tool to help students get the information they need to make their days at UWaterloo a little easier.

This mobile-friendly portal will be a gateway for the information students need, just when they need it. Students can customize the widgets that appear in their portal, so they get the most relevant information. This will be a tool to help improve their success at UWaterloo.

About to graduate

Find all the information you'll need to get organized for graduation on the Registrar's website. If you are not sure you've met all your degree requirements to graduate, please contact your academic advisor.

Library

If you are a Waterloo student and require assistance that goes beyond what is provided through the Library's general information services, you may make an appointment with the liaison/specialist librarian for your academic department.
