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.


For the safety of the community, Laurier suspended all lab-, human- and field-based research in mid-March, with very few exceptions. Jonathan Newman, vice-president: research, has shared a phased plan for resuming research activity based on public health guidelines.

In the meantime, the Office of Research Services is open and all research facilitators and staff are available by email or Teams chat. If you have general questions about research, email

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. 

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
