On November 13th, sharepoint.uwaterloo.ca changed to Nexus authentication<http://ist.uwaterloo.ca/Sharepoint-Nexus/>. Since this change, you need to be aware of two issues:

Using a non-Internet Explorer browsers (e.g. FireFox, Chrome, Safari)?
You now need to login to SharePoint using nexus\userid.

Site Owners, are you adding new users?
You now need to add as nexus\userid. Do not use friendly-names (e.g. jack.jones) for the userid. The built-in SharePoint Directory lookup is a handy tool (book icon on the right side of the users add window) or you can use the authenticated WatIAM search<http://watiam.uwaterloo.ca/search/app/authen/>.

Thank you.
