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 faculty and staff are encouraged to monitor internal updates that affect academic continuity and university operations.

Academic Continuity

As we monitor the outbreak on the novel coronavirus, one of the processes underway is planning and support for academic continuity to minimize impact on students.

Latest Update: March 27: Option to convert grades to “Credit” or “Withdraw”


For the safety of our community, Laurier has suspended all research activities that involve face-to-face interactions with members of the public, effective March 16 to April 30, 2020. We will re-evaluate the end date as the situation develops.

In the meantime, the Office of Research Services will be providing updates and recommendations to support faculty in their transition to new working arrangements.

Work From Home

Human Resources has launched a Working from Home site to support Laurier employees while the university temporarily shifts to a virtual work environment.

To support managers and supervisors, Human Resources has developed a COVID-19 Management Toolkit with timely information and FAQs.

Latest Update: March 25: Building Access Update


Technical Support and Resources

As Laurier temporarily shifts operations to a more virtual environment, technical support and resources are available for working remotely using either a Laurier issued computer or a personal computer. Key highlights include:

  • service desk hours and contact information
  • alternatives to voicemail and office phones
  • information about Microsoft Teams and Office365
  • virtual private network (VPN) instructions
