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.

Wilfrid Laurier University is closed today, Thursday, March 24, due to severe winter weather. This closure includes the university’s Waterloo and Brantford campuses, the Faculty of Social Work building in Kitchener, and the Toronto office.

When the university is thus closed, the closing is for both the day and night.

Closing the university means that:

  • All classes are cancelled.
  • Meetings and other scheduled events are not held.
  • Staff, other than those needed for essential services, are not expected to be at work.
  • Examinations are cancelled. Any centrally scheduled examinations that have been cancelled will be rescheduled by the Office of the Registrar.
  • Deadlines for assignments and other submissions are postponed until the same hour on the next weekday that the University is open.

In the case of an on-campus emergency in Waterloo or Kitchener, please call Laurier’s Special Constable Service at 519-885-3333. At Laurier Brantford, call 519-756-8228 ext. 5888.
