Laurier’s innovative programs and academic excellence are the reason you’re here. We get that. But this is your life, too – and if you’re going to get the full Laurier experience, well, you’ve got to make this place your own, right? The moment you step foot onto one of our campuses, you’ll know you are home. Our students have built an amazing community and we’ve saved you a spot in it.
Start your Laurier experience off right by participating in O-Week. Hosted by Laurier's Student Union, Orientation Week is packed full of events and activities from concerts to get involved fairs. Meet people, have fun and learn more about your new home.
Experiential learning takes many shapes and forms, and at Laurier you can add experience to your resumé through our Co-Curricular Record (CCR). It’s the things you’re involved in outside of the classroom that set you apart for employers.
Join up with any one of our more than 200 campus clubs and associations across our Waterloo and Brantford campuses and meet other like-minded students who share your passion. Can’t find your fit? Create your own club!
Participate in one of our Residence Councils and create an amazing first-year experience for everyone living in residence with you. Plan events and meet new people along the way.
Homecoming is a time-honoured tradition in higher education, but no one does it quite like us! Our school spirit is infectious and it won’t take long before you’re singing “It’s great to be a Laurier Golden Hawk” at the top of your lungs.
You don’t have to play on a varsity sports team to compete. Join one of our existing club or intramural teams and compete with your friends in sports such as cricket, dance, flag football or hockey, just to name a few.
Meet up with a group, or work on your own with an abundance of study spaces to choose from Laurier's got you covered. Our 24-hour study lounges are designed with you in mind. Couches, tables, chairs, desks—you name it, we have it. No matter what time it is.
Looking to take a study break with your friends? There are many places on- and off-campus to spend time connecting with new friends in a relaxed setting at both of our campuses.
Come out to one of the many Students’ Union events. Created by students for students, some of the events hosted last year included The Amazing Race and Winter Carnival.
Student Exchange Program
Laurier has partnered with universities all over the world to offer exchange programs to our students. Studying abroad allows you to broaden your perspective of the world and gain an increased sense of self and independence while building skills transferable to future employment.
