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.


On-Campus Services

Laurier is committed to creating a barrier-free environment for all persons, including persons with disabilities, whether this is while studying, visiting or working. As part of this commitment, we offer a variety of services and supports that help to create an accessible Laurier.

At Laurier, we have a number of resources that can provide you with information about supports related to accessibility.
