Waterloo mourns the loss of one of its students

Thursday, July 27, 2017

It is with great sadness that the University of Waterloo confirms the death of one of our students today.

The Waterloo Regional Police Service confirmed the death of the student at Mackenzie King Village, one of the residences on campus. We have contacted the parents to offer our sincere condolences and support services.

We have been cooperating with local authorities on the investigation. At this point, we are not in a position to release the name of the student. We will commit to keeping members of our campus community updated with new information as we can.

If you need support, we encourage you to reach out to our Counselling Services team at 519-888-4567 ext. 32655 or the post-secondary student helpline, Good2Talk, which is available 24/7 at 1-866-925-5454.

Our thoughts are with the family and friends during this difficult time.
