Look into Laurier

Join us at Laurier

Being 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.


It’s hard to explain what it means to be a Golden Hawk without meeting us in person. No matter which of our campuses you tour, once you come, you’ll immediately feel the community spirit that makes Laurier special.

Brantford Campus Tour+ Days

Join us for an enhanced campus visit during Tour+ Days! Laurier’s unique downtown Brantford campus will be hosting Tour+ Days on Feb. 2 and 3, 2017. You’ll be able to experience our Brantford campus through tours, mock lectures and professor drop-in office hours.

Tour+ Days provide a flexible schedule so that participants can enjoy any portion of the events offered. You can plan your day with our event schedule, so that you get the campus experience that you are looking for.

Faculty of Music Open House

Experience what it’s like to be a Laurier music student for a day by attending the Music Open House on Friday, March 10, 2017. You can register and attend classes, meet instructors, tour the Faculty of Music and more.
