Join us at Laurier

Becoming 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.

University may mean living on your own, but it doesn’t mean you’ve got to fend for yourself. Whether you need extra help with classes, career advice, counselling or a doctor’s appointment, we’ve got resources at the ready in both Waterloo and Brantford.

Academic Support

Our Centre for Student Success has a range of supports to help you plan your academic requirements, with services ranging from supplement instruction for traditionally hard courses (we’re looking at you, economics) to helping improve your writing and study skills. And our Accessible Learning Centre helps students with documented disabilities reach their full academic potential.

Visit our Academic Services webpage to explore all the academic support available to you.

Leadership, Volunteering and Work

The Career Centre is your resource for learning what you can do with your degree, finding a job and apply to further education. Our Cooperative Education department provides opportunities to gain paid work experience during your studies, while our Centre for Community Service-Learning can hook you up with volunteer placements that give you experience while you help a community in need.

Your student government doesn’t just represent your interests – it offers plenty of opportunities to get involved in shaping the student experience. Be an icebreaker for O-Week, or get your campaign posters ready and run for president.

Health and Wellness

Your health and wellness are integral to both your personal and academic success, and we encourage all of our students to takes advantage of the services provided by the Wellness Centres, which cover all your medical, mental and support needs.

Campus Safety

With Special Constables conducting foot, bike and vehicle patrols of our campuses around the clock, and video surveillance cameras monitoring many of our buildings, student safety is our priority. Both campuses offer a safewalk service, Foot Patrol, provided by student volunteers to ensure you get home safely, and we also offer a mobile safety application, SAFEHawk.

Laurier International

Whether you’re an international or a Canadian student, Laurier International can enhance your international and intercultural skills. Laurier International also manages academic exchanges and other opportunities to travel abroad, such as internships, volunteering, field courses and more.

Creating a Culture of Inclusion

Laurier is dedicated to creating a culture of inclusion and because we truly value the diversity among our students, we recognize their unique needs. Operating from a social justice framework, Laurier offers numerous services, supports and opportunities for our students to get involved.

Supports for Indigenous Students

Our Indigenous Student Centres (one on each campus) are not only places where Indigenous students can connect with their heritage, but are also places of education for the broader Laurier community.

Supports for Diverse Students

The Diversity and Equity Office (DEO) advocates for the equal treatment of everyone, regardless of your gender, race, ethnicity, culture, sexuality, religion, age, ability or socio-economic background. As we work to eliminate sexual assault on campus, the Gendered Violence Task Force (housed in the DEO) provides additional supports to the Laurier community.

Money and Registration Matters

Have you heard about our OneCard? You can use it for taking the bus, checking out a library book, buying food, and much more. Need help with OSAP? Our Service Laurier offices on both the Waterloo and Brantford campuses are your one-stop shop for all enrolment services, including course registration, financial aid, and scholarships and bursaries.
