Eating on Campus


Food Services

Laurier provides its own food service operation catering to residence and non-residence students, offering nutritional meals with the flexibility and freedom of individual choice, including a wide variety of snack items.

The Food Services staff is pleased each year to meet new students. Our goal is to keep the health and well-being of the students foremost in our planning. Accordingly, we strive to provide nutritious meals while offering a wide and pleasing variety of foods.

Food Services can meet the needs of all students with any food allergies or diet requirements. Simply contact them if you have special dietary requirements. 

Students living in university residence (except Bricker Residence, Laurier Place Residence, Regina Street Residence and University Place Residence) must purchase a meal plan. Students living in residence with kitchens, or who live off-campus may wish to purchase a smaller meal plan for convenience.

Wilf's Restaurant

Wilf’s has always been a great destination for WLU students, staff, faculty, and guests. Originally established in 1980 and opened as an ‘alternative lounge’, the atmosphere in Wilf’s early days was indeed representative of a quiet room. It wasn’t until the early 1990’s that Wilf’s took a dramatic change. The Students’ Union took on a $5 million renovation to the Fred Nichols Campus Centre whereby Wilf’s was transformed from a lounge to the full service bar and restaurant it is now.

With delicious food, nightly all-ages programming and a central location, it is no wonder Wilf's is such a popular spot for students living on and off-campus.
