Feds text feature

Sometimes talking to another student is more comforting than talking to an adult. They understand where you’re coming from more often than not, and may have also gone through the same or similar experiences. That’s why MATES is a student-driven one-to-one peer support program, open to all those who attend the University of Waterloo. Contact them for more information.
No need to keep borrowing textbooks from your friends - Feds Used Books has what you need at prices that won’t make you cry. If you’re already finished with your books, Feds Used Books can put money back into your pocket by buying them back from you! With Feds Used Books, you’re always covered.
Now is the best time to apply for a part-time job for the spring term. Check out our full listing of opportunities to see where you fit.
