The WatCard is the official University of Waterloo identification card. It provides our students with access to various services on and off campus, such as printing, food services, gym membership and even transportation. The student’s account and personal information is kept strictly confidential between the WatCard office and the University of Waterloo; outside parties will not have access to account information without his or her proper consent, written or in person.
Want to ensure your student has convenient access to healthy food choices while on campus? The easiest way to do this is by purchasing a meal plan.

The University of Waterloo acknowledges that much of our work takes place on the traditional territory of the Neutral, Anishinaabeg and Haudenosaunee peoples. Our main campus is situated on the Haldimand Tract, the land promised to the Six Nations that includes six miles on each side of the Grand River. Our active work toward reconciliation takes place across our campuses through research, learning, teaching, and community building, and is centralized within our Indigenous Initiatives Office.
