Who can order?

Care packages are intended for students who aren't going home for the holidays. This can include, but is not limited to:

  • Undergraduate international students
  • Graduate international students
  • Students from outside of Ontario

We want you to feel at home in Kitchener-Waterloo and have a jolly holiday. We're positive that there will be something in the care package that will add some sparkle to your staycation. 

Moving out of residence for the holiday

If you live in residence, you will have to move out for the winter break. However, there are many short-term housing options available to you. You can also contact the Waterloo Housing Office for more information.
