What... is your name?

According to our constitution we are officially the "Computer Science Club of the University of Waterloo." You can contact our executive by e-mail at, come by the office in MC 3036/3037 or mail us at the following address.

Computer Science Club
Math & Computer 3036/3037
University of Waterloo
200 University Avenue West
Waterloo, ON  N2L 3G1

Our office phone number is (519) 888-4567 x33870.

We also have an IRC channel: #csc on Freenode.

What... is your quest?

Again our lovely constitution (it really is quite a read, see for yourself!) answers this question. In short, we exist to promote knowledge of and interest in computer science as well as allowing those interested in computer science to talk to each other. We have an office where members get together, a library of computer science books available to our members, computer accounts on our various machines and much more. Frequently we host events related to computing, including talks, tutorials and demonstrations.

What... is the air-speed velocity of an unladen swallow?

What do you mean? An African or European swallow? (idea shamelessly stolen from the GNU libstdc++ homepage)

Who is your executive?

Each term a new executive is elected by the membership. See the Executive page to find out who this term's executive is, and watch for when this term's elections will be held if you want to participate on our Events page.

Can I join?

In short, yes! Almost certainly.

In compliance with MathSoc regulations and in recognition of the club being primarily targeted at undergraduate students, full membership is open to all Social Members of the Mathematics Society and restricted to the same. Affiliate membership is open to all others in the University of Waterloo community. Affiliate members may not vote or hold executive positions. Membership costs a mere $2 (Canadian) a term.

How do I join?

Simply drop by our office in MC 3036/3037 with some identification (WatCard, driver's license, etc.) and $2 per term that you would like to pay for. We'll have you sign our machine usage agreement and after your account on our systems is created you'll have access to all the services available to members.
