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.

Visit us in person by booking a campus tour, or during one of our open houses or campus event days. If you can’t visit us in person, you can experience our campuses with a virtual campus tour.

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.

Waterloo Campus March Break Open House

Our Waterloo campus is hosting its annual March Break Open House on Saturday, March 11, 2017. At open house, you’ll be able to tour campus, tour residence and attend information sessions. You’ll get a great taste of our vibrant campus life while learning about admissions, student support services, your program(s) of interest and what it’s like to be a Laurier Golden Hawk.

Brantford Campus March Break Open House

Open House is one of the best times to visit campus! Our Brantford campus is hosting its annual March Break Open House on Wednesday, March 15, 2017. You can tour our unique campus, which is integrated into the downtown core of Brantford, tour residence, attend information sessions, and visit our information fair.
