We will be performing scheduled maintenance to all WatCard systems beginning 3:00 p.m. Feb 22 and lasting until 3:00 a.m. on Feb 23. During this time all WatCard services may experience intermittent outages and some services may be unavailable until the maintenance is completed. We apologize for any inconveniences caused during this time.

To ensure continued and uninterrupted access to student services, we recommend that any registered students who have not yet updated their card, visit our service counter at their earliest convenience, and prior to leaving for winter break. Students who are currently on a co-op term should come in for their new card when they are back on campus in January.

We are excited to announce three local business that have joined our program for off-campus vendors: Balzac's Coffee Roasters (Phillip Street location), Mambella's Italian Kitchen, and Mucho Burrito Fresh Mexican Grill (King St. N. location). These locations will now accept WatCard Flex Dollars as a payment option.
