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.
Grand River Transit will be transitioning to their electronic fare system at some point during the Winter 2018 term. At this point, no firm date has been set, but UPASS eligible students should update to the new WatCard as soon as possible, so they are prepared for the transition.
Our service counter on the Lower Level of the Student Life Centre is open Monday to Friday 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. until December 22. Re-opening for the Winter term on January 2.
Since the beginning of the Fall 2017 term we have issued more than 22,000 WatCards to new and returning students, including more than 10,000 WatCards printed during the first week of the term.
