Activate Your Laurier Email

The official means of communication between you and Laurier is through your myLaurier Gmail account. You should check your Laurier email regularly over the summer months and throughout your time at Laurier, as it will be used to communicate important information to you from staff and faculty.

The myLaurier Student Gmail system is only available to you after you have confirmed your offer of admission through OUAC, and after Laurier has received that confirmation, which may take several days.

Once your myLaurier Gmail account is ready for activation, we’ll send you an email to the personal email address you used on your application. You can then access your Laurier email by doing the following:

  1. Visit g.mylaurier.ca.
  2. Enter your Laurier username and Laurier password. Your username and password are the same as when logging into LORIS. If you have never logged into LORIS, your default password is preset to your date of birth in the format MMDDYYYY. If you have lost this email or you are unsure of your password, contact the ICT Student Service Desk at support@mylaurier.ca.
  3. You’ll have to choose a new password as soon as you log in for the first time.

Register for Password Self-Service
