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.


Introducing the Milton Education Village

Our reputation for academic excellence is coming to the fast-growing community of Milton, Ontario, with a new campus at the heart of the Milton Education Village (MEV).

Laurier’s new campus will be part of a comprehensively planned neighbourhood in west Milton, encompassing 400 acres of land alongside the Niagara Escarpment. With plans for postsecondary education along with residential, commercial and recreational uses, this future community is the perfect site for a growing campus.

Leveraging Milton’s location within the Toronto-Waterloo Innovation Corridor, our science program offerings will emphasize innovative program delivery through unique experiential learning opportunities.

Academics

Laurier will establish a university campus in Milton in two phases. For the 2019/20 and 2020/21 academic years, all classes for Milton programs will be held at the Milton Education Village Innovation Centre. As early as fall 2021, classes will be moved to Laurier’s permanent campus in Milton, a picturesque site adjacent to the Mattamy National Cycling Centre.

The Milton Education Village Innovation Centre is an ecosystem of emerging talent and home of HalTech, the region’s tech accelerator. You’ll study in an environment that has been purpose-built to help start-up companies thrive, turn innovations into growing ventures, and to facilitate networking and work-integrated learning opportunities with local entrepreneurs. The Innovation Centre houses classrooms, laboratories, student services, study spaces and more.

Accommodations

As we build our residence program in Milton, Laurier will help you find accommodations that fit your needs.

Transportation

The MEV Innovation Centre is accessible by Milton's transit system, GO Transit, 400-series highways and an active transportation network, making it easy to get to your classes and other amenities. There is onsite parking available for those driving.
