Wilfrid Laurier University’s two biggest campuses are in Waterloo and Brantford, but we also have a Faculty of Social Work in Kitchener and a weekend MBA program in Toronto. Laurier is also establishing a new campus in Milton. All our campuses and locations are about an hour's drive (or less!) away from Toronto, Canada’s biggest city.
Laurier's Waterloo and Brantford campuses are located on the shared traditional territory of the Neutral, Anishnaabe and Haudenosaunee peoples. Read our full land acknowledgement.
Of Laurier’s 19,000 graduate and undergraduate students, 16,000 are enrolled at our Waterloo campus, which trades on the energy from the thriving, tech-savvy Region of Waterloo. Faculties in Arts, Music, Science, Education, Graduate Studies and the Lazaridis School of Business and Economics are based here. Laurier is a leading force in research among Canadian universities, and many of our research centres and institutes are housed here.
Study at campus where you’re never far from your latest outdoor adventure. More than 3,000 students are enrolled at Laurier’s Brantford campus, which is rooted in the downtown core yet close to great walking and biking trails. The faculties of Liberal Arts and Human and Social Sciences are based here.
Laurier is excited to extend the university's high-quality academic and student experience along the Toronto-Waterloo Innovation Corridor to the fast-growing community of Milton – giving local and commuter students the chance to study close to home. We’re committed to bringing industry-leading expertise in arts, mathematics and engineering to our Milton campus in years to come.
Laurier’s Lyle S. Hallman Faculty of Social Work program is housed in a fully renovated century-old building in downtown Kitchener. Close to 300 graduate students are based in the heart of the downtown area, and minutes away from Laurier’s Waterloo campus.
Since 1999, the Lazaridis School has offered graduate programming in the financial district of Toronto. Each year more than 250 MBA and MFin candidates are enrolled in one of our “part-time alternate weekend programs,” located at Vantage Venues on the 27th floor of the Sun Life Financial Tower.
Laurier maintains a research office in Yellowknife as part of its research partnership with the Government of the Northwest Territories. The office, which opened in 2017, allows researchers associated with the partnership to be based out of the Northwest Territories full time. This location enables year-round field research and the ability to foster close relationships with local government and Indigenous and community organizations. Staff in the Yellowknife office also facilitate events such as field courses for Laurier and local students, as well as other community engagement activities.
