Laurier’s Vision for Our Milton Campus

Laurier is committed to extending the university's high-quality academic and student experience along the Toronto-Waterloo Innovation Corridor to the fast-growing community of Milton – giving students from the Halton Region the chance to study close to home.

As a multi-campus, multi-community university, Laurier is known for offering unique programs that make each campus its own, while retaining the essence of Laurier’s strong community culture that binds us together.

Evolving over multiple phases, Laurier’s new campus will be part of a comprehensively planned neighbourhood in west Milton, encompassing 400 acres of land alongside the Niagara Escarpment. With plans for postsecondary education along with residential, commercial and recreational uses, this future community is the perfect site for a growing campus.
