WatCard for fully online students

Waterloo students are required to have a WatCard when writing exams and for accessing online resources, including the library resources.

Students who can, should come to the WatCard office to have a photo WatCard created.

We realize that not all students can come to campus, so students that are fully online, or registered through WatSpeed can request a PDF version of their WatCard information to be email to their University email address. The PDF contains your name, ID number, and library barcode but does not have a photo, and cannot be used to access in person services. It is intended for use by students who will not physically be on campus.

Online only and WatSpeed students who have lost their WatCard can request a new card by submitting an online student replacement WatCard form.
