Laurier's Waterloo campus is home to more than 16,000 undergraduate and graduate students. On this close-knit campus, you're steps away from classes, residence and campus amenities. Whether you're running into friends, finding your favourite study spot or watching a game at University Stadium, campus soon becomes your home away from home.
The time it takes to walk across campus.
Our Waterloo campus is located in the thriving, culturally diverse community of Kitchener-Waterloo (KW), located one hour west of Toronto with a population of about 365,000.
With two universities and a college, this university town is a vibrant and student-friendly city with plenty of off-campus housing, entertainment, dining and recreational opportunities. And a new light rail transit system makes it easier than ever to get around. In KW, you can study, live and play without compromise.
KW is part of Waterloo Region, which is home to Canada's fastest-growing technology sector and is part of the Toronto-Waterloo Region Corridor, the second-largest technology cluster in North America (second only to California). Our community has a reputation for innovation, where a new generation of entrepreneurs are ready to invent the future. Communitech, an internationally recognized, industry-led innovation centre calls Waterloo home, as does OpenText, Shopify, Google, Oracle, Vidyard and Igloo.
And 5,200+ tech startups in the Toronto-Waterloo Region Corridor, the largest technology cluster in North America outside California.

It's hard to explain what it means to be a Golden Hawk without meeting us in person.
No matter which of our campuses you tour, once you come you'll immediately feel this "sense of community" we keep talking about.
