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.

Music Open House

Join us on March 9 as we introduce you to our current students and music faculty. Get to know our instructors by sitting in on classes and hearing our students perform. What better way to learn if Laurier is right for you then to live it for a day!

Our schedule will continously update below until March 9.

The day will begin at 9:15 a.m. with a concert and a Faculty of Music overview in the Recital Hall.

  • Academic and faculty buildings
  • Residence rooms (both dormitory and apartment style)
  • Food outlets
  • The Athletic Complex
  • The Laurier Library

Tours depart from the Welcome Centre, located in the Bricker Academic Building. One of our Laurier Student Ambassador tour guides will meet you in the Welcome Centre before the tour. Please arrive 10 minutes before the scheduled start of the tour. Directions to our Waterloo campus will be sent to you via email (some online map directions are not accurate).

Tours scheduled Monday-Friday can be accompanied with a Faculty of Music building tour and advising session with Faculty of Music staff. Contact for further details.

Parking on campus is strictly enforced, so please ensure you park in designated visitor parking only.
