Experience Laurier Milton

Small class sizes, high-quality academics (led by Canada’s best professors!) and outstanding local industry connections are just a few of the ways our new Milton campus will ensure your university experience – and career after – are rewarding and inspiring.

Study Close to Home

Conveniently located just outside the GTA, Laurier Milton offers commute-ready students the opportunity to study close to home and enjoy a comfortable learn-work-live lifestyle. We're welcoming the first undergraduate class of Milton Golden Hawks in fall 2024. Join us?

 

Future-Driven Degrees

Two of Laurier's most popular and established programs, Computer Science and Psychology, are available in Milton! Both undergraduate degrees will be taught with an innovative, problem-based approach, and have been designed with extensive hands-on learning opportunities (including co-op for eligible Computer Science (BSc) students!).

Whether you're excited to unpack the biological and behavioural science of the human mind or learn the ins and outs of diverse computing languages and algorithms, Laurier Milton will give you the quality education and career-readiness you're looking for.

Exclusive Scholarship for Milton Students

With a new campus comes an all-new $5,000 scholarship. Starting in fall 2024, the top 100 Laurier Milton applicants with confirmed offers will receive the Laurier Milton Founders' Scholarship (Donor-Funded) entitling them to $1,250 per year for each of their four undergraduate years at Laurier.

In addition, Laurier Milton students have access to the same entrance scholarships and bursaries as their peers on the Waterloo and Brantford campuses.
