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.


You’re here to learn, and we’re here to help you succeed. Having trouble writing an essay? Taking notes? Choosing classes? Don’t be shy. Ask for help – we’re happy to give it!


Academic Advising and Support

Our Academic Advising and Support system can help you plan your academic requirements, supplement instruction for traditionally hard courses (we’re looking at you, economics), and help improve your writing and study skills.

Most of these services are delivered in small groups and individual consultation settings, and are designed to encourage the sharing of ideas and peer learning.

Undergraduate program advisors, whom you can contact through your program, can help you with course selection, transfer information, graduate options and more. Faculty academic advisors offer general academic advising and support students in general BA/BSc degrees without designation, petitions and clearing probation.

Accessible Learning

Our Accessible Learning Centre helps students with documented disabilities reach their full academic potential. The centre provides tutoring assistance, learning strategy and assistive technology support, exam accommodation and alternate-format course materials.
