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.

Re-Opening Plans

As the government takes a phased approach to re-opening the province, Laurier has been working to develop a detailed and integrated plan for re-opening the university as permitted by provincial health guidelines.

The Pandemic Recovery Steering Group (PRSG) oversees the development of re-opening plans for the university's operations – in support of the academic mission, and with the health and safety of our students, staff and faculty at the forefront.

Guiding Principles

  • Safeguard the health and safety of our university community.
  • Maintain academic and research excellence.
  • Enhance our exceptional student experience.
  • Demonstrate our commitment to the care and well-being of our employees.
  • Continue to partner with our local communities as an anchor institution.

Scaling Framework

The university’s return-to-campus planning and assessment activities are a dynamic, evolving process. Any functions or services that can continue to work remotely and effectively from home will continue to do so for the foreseeable future to limit the number of people on our campuses.

The PRSG developed a COVID-19 scaling framework to guide safety planning, decision making and priority setting in regards to campus operations and activities. The framework identifies four levels – low, moderate, high and critical – independently applied to ten campus categories.

Status of Campus Services and Spaces

Most services are being delivered remotely or are suspended. Users are encouraged to check with individual units for details.

The following functions have been approved for some degree of an on-campus presence this fall:
