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.

Questions About Academics

What programs are being offered in Milton?

We are offering Bachelor of Science degree programs in Milton. Visit our programs page to learn more about each program.

Where will my classes be held?

For the 2019/20 and 2020/21 academic years, all classes 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 in southwest Milton adjacent to the Mattamy National Cycling Centre.

How many students will be in my class?

In the Innovation Centre, you’ll experience very small class sizes, with the majority of classes at 50 or fewer students and laboratories at a maximum of 25 students. This is an unparalleled opportunity for you to work directly with, and get to know, your professors and to establish connections with classmates.

Will I be able to do co-op?

All of our programs include an opportunity for co-op. You apply at the beginning of your second year and must meet specific entrance requirements.

Are there differences between the Bachelor of Science programs offered at Laurier’s Milton campus and Laurier’s Waterloo campus?

The theories, facts, experimental techniques, software skills, etc., learned in the Milton campus offerings of our courses will be identical to what is offered in those same courses at the Waterloo campus.

Because the academic content of the courses will be the same, interested students could transfer between the Waterloo and Milton campuses (if GPA and other requirements to transfer are met) to explore the full range of academic and geographical opportunities featured at each of our campuses.

Can I transfer to Laurier’s Milton campus from another university?

We are accepting applications for students interested in starting Year 1 of their degree requirements for fall 2019. In fall 2019, only 100-level courses will be available for our programs at the Milton campus. By fall 2020, select 200-level courses will be available, and so on. A large selection of senior courses (200-, 300-, and 400-level) are currently available online through Laurier’s other campuses.

Questions about Services

What library services will be offered?

The majority of library resources today are available online through our learning management system or through Laurier’s library website. The Milton Education Village Innovation Centre will not have a permanent library, but we will transport hardcopy resources from the Waterloo campus when requested.

What bookstore services will be offered?

A kiosk selling textbooks, school supplies and Laurier-branded clothing and accessories will be housed within the Milton Education Village Innovation Centre.

What student services will be available?

Our students in Milton will be fully supported by a range of student services, such as:

  • Accessible learning services;
  • Academic advising;
  • Career services;
  • International student services;
  • Health and wellness services;
  • Multi-faith services and a reflection space;
  • Parking services;
  • Registration and financial services; and
  • Supports for racialized, female and LGBTQ+ students.

Services will be provided by Laurier or by community partners.

What recreational facilities will be available?

You will have access to the recreational facilities at the Mattamy Cycling Centre (Velodrome), a new facility that has workout spaces, yoga and spin classes, basketball and volleyball courts, and world-class indoor cycling events. The Town of Milton is also home to many sports and recreation centres, public swimming pools, parks and picturesque trails.

What student clubs and activities will be available?

The Laurier student experience is all about learning both inside and outside the classroom and we actively encourage students to participate in clubs – or even start their own. We anticipate that discipline-specific and other themed clubs will be started by our first incoming cohort of passionate Laurier students. Laurier’s Faculty of Science Student Association (FOSSA) will provide funding to operate clubs in Milton.

What residence opportunities will be available?

There is a full range of housing opportunities in Milton within minutes of the Milton Education Village Innovation Centre. Our staff will work with you to meet your accommodation needs. Residence opportunities will come with the opening of our flagship building at the permanent campus site in approximately fall 2021.

What dining options will be available?

A grab-and-go sandwich and coffee shop will be housed within the Milton Education Village Innovation Centre. There are several full-service dine-in and fast-food restaurants within a 1-km radius (3-minute drive; 15-minute walk) of the Innovation Centre. Downtown Milton, only a 10-minute drive away, also has dozens of restaurants, bistros and cafes.
