As the University of Waterloo continues to navigate unfolding COVID-19 situation, the Sustainability Office has moved all activities virtual to prioritize health and safety while continuing to support the campus community. For our campus community and partners:

Events: All events, workshops, and other in-person activities are cancelled. We have alerted all registered participants for events. For some workshops, (i.e. the Sustainability Certificate for employees), we are exploring options for virtual participation and will advise registrants directly as those decisions are made.

Contact: The physical office will be closed as staff are working remotely. Please call or email any of our team members to stay in touch - we are happy to connect.

In-person meetings: All in-person meetings with students or employees will be cancelled or made virtual. We will contact meeting participants with further details, but we are well set-up to connect!

TravelWise Services: GRT has suspended purchases of all new Corporate Passes. Current pass holders can continue to manage and renew their cards online. Please follow GRT alerts for service schedule and route changes and practice social distancing and proper hand washing as much as possible. TravelWise has also suspended carpool matching on until further notice. The Emergency Ride Home program remains active.

For all University of Waterloo information regarding COVID-19, please visit the University's information page.
