Join us at Laurier

Becoming a Golden Hawk means more than just cheering on our (really good) varsity teams – it means being a student who cares about your community, who works hard in the classroom, and who takes advantage of all the learning opportunities that can happen outside the classroom, too.

  • Food outlets
  • The Athletic Complex
  • The Laurier Library

Tours depart from the Welcome Centre, located in the Peters Building. One of our Laurier Student Ambassador tour guides will meet you in the Welcome Centre before the tour. Please arrive 10 minutes before the scheduled start of the tour. Directions to our Waterloo campus will be sent to you via email (some online map directions are not accurate).

Tours scheduled Monday-Friday can be accompanied with a Faculty of Music building tour and advising session with Faculty of Music staff. Contact for further details.

Parking on campus is strictly enforced, so please ensure you park in designated visitor parking only.
