Laurier is our university ? and while you?re here, it?s also your home.
Your experience in residence will shape your university career in ways you can?t imagine: you?ll live on your own for the first time, forging communities with people who have entirely different perspectives from yours. (You?ll also figure out the mysteries of laundry, which will thrill your parents to no end.)
We guarantee residence to all first-year students who submit applications and deposits by June 1, 2015. Rooms are assigned based on preference and availability. You can request to live with a friend; otherwise, we?ll do our best to pair you with a roommate who has habits similar to yours. So be honest when you fill out the questionnaire that?s part of the application, and we?ll find you another night owl who likes to listen to hip-hop while studying.
Residence Learning Communities in both Waterloo and Brantford give you a chance to live in themed environments that expand on concepts learned in class and spend more time with students who share the same interests. Want a bigger say in your residence experience? First-Year Leadership Programs in the arts, diversity and more give you an opportunity to create programming related to your interests. And our residence councils provide leadership opportunities and a great way to get involved in your community.
Living off-campus doesn?t mean that you?ll be cut off from all the action. The Laurier Off-Campus University Students (LOCUS) program at our Waterloo campus, and the Laurier Off-Campus (Laurier OC) program at our Brantford campus, schedule special events for the off-campus community.
