Office Update

The WatCard office remains closed to in person visits, however WatCard staff are still processing requests and maintaining services.

The WatCard office has moved to Needles Hall, and will provide our services from The Centre. The Centre is expected to re-open for in person service in mid-August.

Connect with us by email, or live chat so we can assist you. WatCard requests, meal plan changes, refunds and other services are available upon request.

Off-Campus Vendor Program

The WatCard Off-Campus Vendor program is intended to create partnerships with vendors in the community to enhance the services available to University of Waterloo students. In doing so, students have the ability to use funds on their WatCard to purchase goods and services in local businesses. Additionally, the program allows for University of Waterloo faculty and staff who have a WatCard to visit partnering establishments in the program.

The WatCard is the University of Waterloo’s comprehensive one card program, used for identification and to access many facilities and services both on and off campus. Students use it every day to purchase food, printing and books, to access the campus athletic facilities, libraries, and residences. Staff and faculty are encouraged to pick up a WatCard so they can also enjoy access to the services available around campus.
