Faculty and staff

Faculty and staff are eligible for a WatCard. To obtain a WatCard, stop by the WatCard service desk, located inside Campus Tech on the lower level of the Student Life Centre.

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.
