Due to construction and space issues we will be changing our carding strategy this year during the move in weekend. We will not be setup in Vendor Alley in the Student Life Centre (SLC) and we will instead have several locations setup to accommodate all students. If you are a residence student then you will be provided a designated location within your residence area.
If you are not a residence student then you will be able to go the normal WatCard service counter inside Campus Tech on the lower level of the SLC.
Move in Weekend hours (Fri. Aug. 31 - Mon Sept. 3):
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.
The WatCard office will begin issuing a new WatCard beginning on August 8, 2017. In addition to a brand new look, the WatCard will feature new technology, in the form of a contactless, smart‐chip to the card. The introduction of chip technology will allow us to move away from the older, magnetic stripe technology that has been used on the card since its introduction in 1993.
The WatCard Office will be issuing new WatCards to all registered students in Fall 2017. This includes first time students as well as returning students. We are switching to a new card technology that will have new security features and new functionality. All registered students will need to transition to the new WatCard in order to have full access to current and future student services.
