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.

Faculty and staff

Faculty and staff are eligible for a WatCard. To obtain a WatCard, stop by the WatCard service desk, located inside The Centre on the main floor of Needles Hall(NH).

You will need your University of Waterloo offer letter or a letter from your department validating your employment plus government issued photo identification.

Employee number will not work as proof of employment as our system is independent from the Human Resources system.


WatCard benefits

Your faculty or staff WatCard comes with similar functionality to a student WatCard.

If you buy a medium coffee every work day then you would save an average of $24.70 a year by paying with WatCard.
