Spring Open House is happening Saturday, May 25, 2019, on the Waterloo campus. Events are happening from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. – just in time for you to make the big decision about accepting your offer!
You can enjoy any portion of the events offered during the day. Get a great taste of our vibrant campus life while learning about residence, student support services, financial aid opportunities, your program of interest and what it’s like to be a Laurier Golden Hawk. You may just meet your future classmates too!
Register to receive advance information and reminders about the event.
Get to a parking spot faster by setting your GPS to an event parking lot. Our central campus parking is limited and is usually full by 9:30 a.m. If you arrive at the main entrance, located at 75 University Avenue West, and our central campus lots are full, you will need to complete a loop of campus before exiting to one of our designated parking lots. To avoid this, proceed directly to one of our event parking lots where volunteers will direct you to main campus.
Our event parking map works best in the Google Maps mobile app. If on a web browser, Google Maps asks you to log in to view the map, try opening the link in a new browser or use your phone to access the map.
If you require accessible parking, please come to Mid Campus Drive at 75 University Avenue West where parking staff will direct you to accessible parking.
In your faculty presentation, you’ll learn more about your program of interest and what to expect in your first year at Laurier.
