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.

Accept Your Offer on OUAC

Accept your offer of admission through the Ontario Universities’ Application Centre (OUAC). You’ll find detailed instructions in your offer of admission letter.

The deadline to accept your offer is June 1, 2021 unless another date is stated on your offer letter.

Activate Your Laurier Email

The official means of communication between you and Laurier is through your myLaurier Gmail account. You should check your Laurier email regularly over the summer months and throughout your time at Laurier, as it will be used to communicate important information to you from staff and faculty.

The myLaurier Student Gmail system is only available to you after you have confirmed your offer of admission through OUAC, and after Laurier has received that confirmation, which may take several days.

Once your myLaurier Gmail account is ready for activation, we’ll send you an email to the personal email address you used on your application. You can then access your Laurier email by doing the following:

  1. Visit
  2. Enter your Laurier username and Laurier password. Your username and password are the same as when logging into LORIS. If you have never logged into LORIS, your default password is preset to your date of birth in the format MMDDYYYY. If you have lost this email or you are unsure of your password, contact the ICT Student Service Desk at
  3. You’ll have to choose a new password as soon as you log in for the first time.

Register for Password Self-Service

You will also need to register for password self-service by following the instructions below. This will allow you to reset your password or unlock your account in the future.

  1. Go to
  2. Log in with your Laurier Network Login username and password.
  3. Select the "Enrolment" tab at the top of the screen. Follow the instructions on the screen to enrol for password self-service.

If you need help, contact the ICT Student Service Desk at
