The University of Waterloo (commonly referred to as Waterloo, UW, or UWaterloo) is a public research university with its main campus in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada. The main campus is located on 404 hectares (998 acres) of land, adjacent to “Uptown” Waterloo and Waterloo Park, and is accessible by car or on foot. The university also has three satellite campuses and four
affiliated university colleges in addition to its main campus. The university’s academic programs are administered by six faculties and thirteen faculty-based schools, which are located throughout the campus. Currently, over 20,000 undergraduate students are enrolled in Waterloo’s co-operative education program, making it the largest post-secondary co-operative education program in the world. Canada’s U15 universities, including the University of Waterloo, are known for their research-intensive programs.
The Waterloo College Associate Faculties were established on April 4, 1956, as a semi-autonomous entity of Waterloo College, which was an affiliate of the University of Western Ontario at the time of its founding. The institution’s origins can be traced back to that date. The University of Waterloo Act, passed by the Legislative Assembly of Ontario in 1959, marked the formal separation of this entity from Waterloo College and its incorporation as a university. It was established in order to meet the growing demand for engineers and technicians in Canada’s postwar economy, which was booming at the time. A faculty of arts was added in 1960, and the College of Optometry in Ontario moved to the university from Toronto in 1967. This made the university a lot bigger in a short time.
The university is a co-educational institution with approximately 36,000 undergraduate and 6,200 postgraduate students enrolled in 2020, according to the most recent data available. Alumni and former students of Waterloo University can be found all over Canada and in over 150 countries, and the university has been associated with a number of award winners, government officials, and business leaders over the course of its history. The University of Waterloo’s varsity teams, known as the Waterloo Warriors, compete in the Ontario University Athletics conference of the United Sports Federation (U Sports).
Besides tuition scholarships, the University of Waterloo will also provide awards to cover expenses such as travel, housing, food, textbooks, and reference materials, as well as student services fees and incidental stipends as determined by the Perimeter Institute (PI). The Perimeter Institute will also pay for things like incidental stipends and incidental stipends, which the PI will decide on.
