Are you an Indigenous student at the University of Waterloo?

Shatitsirótha’! The  Waterloo Indigenous Student Centre (WISC) is committed to providing support to Indigenous students at UW!

WISC provides supports to Indigenous students through a wholistic lens: cultural, academic, well-being, and social engagement. It is an environment that is supportive, respectful, inclusive, and welcoming for all Indigenous students on campus.  

If you are an Indigenous student -- YOU are welcome at the WISC!

Come join one of our soup lunches and beading on Thursdays from 12-2pm, or just come check out the space and meet other students

We welcome Indigenous students from all backgrounds, regardless of status, reserve or urban background, or level of cultural knowledge.

If you are just starting your reconnecting journey or were raised with teachings, we have the resources to support you, and if we do not then we are open to suggestions. 

The WISC staff are here to guide, support and listen to you as an Indigenous student on campus.
