Join us at Laurier

Being 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.

Laurier is committed to providing you with a variety of services to ensure your health, safety and academic success.

We also offer many services specifically for international students. Our staff and student volunteers are dedicated to ensuring that your experience as an international student is the best it can be.

We are here to help you through your entire university experience – from application to graduation – and beyond.
