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.

A new mobile application called Hawk Mobile will help Laurier students and visitors find important campus information with ease.

The application, developed by ICT (Information and Communication Technologies), in partnership with Laurier Physics and Computer Science Professor Chinh Hoang and a group of computer science students, was designed to better facilitate student life on the university’s campuses and meet the growing demand for mobile student services. Hawk Mobile is currently available on the Google Playstore and Blackberry World, with plans to make it available on the Apple Store in the fall.

Hawk Mobile will provide users with access to:

  • Student information: grades and class schedules.
  • Links to MyLaurier email and MyLearningSpace.
  • Interactive campus maps for the Waterloo and Brantford campuses.
  • A searchable event listing and calendar for academic events.
  • An up-to-date list of class cancellations.
  • A “What’s Cookin” link to dining options on Laurier’s Waterloo and Brantford campuses.
  • Important numbers directory including: emergency support (Special Constable Service and Waterloo Regional Police), the Laurier switchboard and student services (Counselling Services, Foot Patrol, Peer Help Line, Service Laurier, and the Wellness Centre).
  • News feeds from Laurier Athletics, the Laurier website and the Students’ Union News.
  • Laurier’s institutional social media accounts.
  • Web page links including: the Laurier Library, legacy website and local weather.

Users do not need to register to use the app; however, students will need to use their MyLaurier network login to access their grades and class schedule, MyLaurier email and MyLearningSpace.

“We’ve had very positive feedback about the Hawk Mobile app so far – the ICT team is thrilled to be able to improve the Laurier student experience through mobile services,” said Fred Verboom, manager, Administrative Information Systems. “Dr. Hoang and his students were essential to the development of this app and I cannot thank them enough for their hard work to help make this happen.”
