Trans and Racialized Student Healthcare Experiences on Campus


*Please note this survey is only to be filled out by UWaterloo students who have accessed Health Services or Counselling Services* 


This survey is one part of a larger project to research the experiences of trans and racialized students when seeking care through Campus Wellness at the University of Waterloo. Based on your feedback, we will then compile a report of recommendations for Campus Wellness, with opportunities to improve the experiences of these groups.  


The Waterloo Undergraduate Student Association (WUSA) believes all students deserve access to quality and inclusive services on campus, that set them up for success both in and outside the classroom. WUSA firmly believes in advocating for students to ensure those needs are met.
