University may mean living on your own, but it doesn’t mean you’ve got to fend for yourself. Whether you need extra help with classes, career advice, counselling or a doctor’s appointment, we’ve got resources at the ready in both Waterloo and Brantford.
The Centre for Student Success supports your academic experiences at Laurier, with services ranging from supplement instruction for traditionally hard courses (we’re looking at you, economics) to helping improve your writing and study skills. And our Accessible Learning Centre helps students with documented disabilities reach their full academic potential.
Visit our Academic Services webpage to explore all the academic support available to you.
The Career Development Centre is your resource for learning what you can do with your degree, finding a job and apply to further education. Our Cooperative Education department provides opportunities to gain paid work experience during your studies, while our Centre for Community Service-Learning can hook you up with volunteer placements that give you experience while you help a community in need. Be sure to check out our Centre for Student Life and Engagement, which has Waterloo and Brantford locations, for even more opportunities for growth and leadership experience.
Your student government doesn’t just represent your interests – it offers plenty of opportunities to get involved in shaping the student experience. Be an icebreaker for O-Week, or get your campaign posters ready and run for president.
Your health and wellness are integral to both your personal and academic success, and we encourage all of our students to takes advantage of the services provided by the Wellness Centres, which cover all your medical, mental and support needs.
With Special Constables conducting foot, bike and vehicle patrols of our campuses around the clock, and video surveillance cameras monitoring many of our buildings, student safety is our priority. Both campuses offer a safewalk service, Foot Patrol, provided by student volunteers to ensure you get home safely, and we also offer a mobile safety application, SAFEHawk.
We strive to create a community that is accessible, equal and inclusive for each and every student. If you’re passionate about this as much as we are, our Diversity and Equity offices have opportunities for you to get involved and make a difference in our community.
Our Aboriginal Student Centres (one on each campus) are not only places where Aboriginal students can connect with their heritage, but are also places of education for the broader Laurier community.
The Diversity and Equity Office advocates for the equal treatment of everyone, regardless of your gender, race, ethnicity, culture, sexuality, religion, age, ability or socio-economic background.
