The Student Success Offices provides academic and personal development services, resources for international students, as well as study abroad and exchange support. We work closely with campus partners to create a vibrant experience for students from their first days at Waterloo, right to convocation.

  2. July 29, 2019Scam alert - Automated telephone calls

    Please be aware of an ongoing phone scam targeting international students and newcomers. Across Canada, people are receiving automated phone calls from individuals claiming to be from the Chinese embassy/consulate. These calls incorrectly tell recipients that they've been implicated in a crime, involved in a fraud investigation, or have a parcel that needs to be picked up. Recipients are instructed to pay money to the caller and/or to isolate from friends and families, go into hiding, and not answer phone calls.

    A reminder that even though cannabis was legalized for adults in Canada, this is not the case in almost all other countries. Learn what you should consider during your studies at Waterloo and when studying, travelling, or working abroad.
