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.

Laurier’s Response to COVID-19

Wilfrid Laurier University’s priority during the outbreak of COVID-19 is the safety of students, staff and faculty while remaining committed to academic excellence and to student satisfaction. The university has taken significant steps to do our part in the national and global effort to contain the spread of the novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2), which causes the disease COVID-19.

Instructional Plans for Fall 2020

The majority of instruction for fall 2020 will take place either remotely or online, with some exceptions as aligned with public health requirements. No students will be required to attend classes in person should they choose not to; alternative arrangements will be provided. Online courses and programs continue to be delivered normally with required exams administered online.

Student Support

To help our students succeed, a Remote Learning: Student Support Hub has been created to provide support in three key areas: academic, mental health and staying connected. Future students can find information about admissions and transition programs on our future student FAQs.
