Example WatCard

Photo upload is only available to new students for their first WatCard.

To have your University of Waterloo ID card ready for you upon your arrival, we ask that you submit a professional colour photo. You can upload a colour snapshot showing a full front view of your head and shoulders according to the requirements shown on this site. By using this process you will avoid lines and save valuable time.

University of Waterloo departments may request Faculty/Staff/Student pictures to be used for official university business. By submitting this photo for your student ID you agree this photo may be used by the University of Waterloo for official purposes. Please contact our office if you have questions about this policy at 519-888-4567. ext. 32751 or watcard@uwaterloo.ca.
