Wilfrid Laurier University has taken steps to ensure the safety of our students, the Laurier community, and our broader communities as we’ve joined the national and global effort to contain the spread of COVID-19.
While these adjustments are important to maintain public health, we understand that they have altered the daily routines of our students, especially for those who moved out of first-year residences and for those with exceptional circumstances who still remain.
The university continues to do everything we can to support students during this especially stressful time.
Laurier is reimbursing residence fees and meal plans for the remaining portion of the winter term to students who have moved out of first-year Laurier-owned and operated residence buildings. Residence reimbursements will appear as a credit on their LORIS account and All-Access Meal Plan reimbursements will appear as a credit on their OneCards, which they can use to purchase food when they return to campus. Unspent Flex Dollars (on the Waterloo campus) and balances on Convenience plans (on the Brantford campus) will be carried forward and can be used to purchase food in the future. Students will see credits on their LORIS and OneCard accounts on May 1.
Laurier’s priority remains supporting students, including those still living in residence and those attending classes online, through these uncertain times.
Residence students received a detailed email from the university about the reimbursements. For information about academic continuity, support, and health and wellness resources, as well as the latest updates, please continue to check Laurier’s coronavirus website.
