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. Meal plans are available for student living both on and off campus. Visit Food Services for more information about meal plans.
For security purposes, we require that you enter your son or daughter’s student ID number and birthdate when adding funds to his or her WatCard. Deposits can be made online via credit card payment or INTERAC direct payment.
