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.

The mobile application Hawk Mobile was launched in 2015 to help Laurier students and visitors find important campus information with ease.

Hawk Mobile is now available on the Apple Store, Google Playstore and Blackberry World. Easy access links to Bookstore resources and Printing Services resources have also been added.

The application, developed by Information and Communication Technologies (ICT), 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.

“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.”

Hawk Mobile will provide users with access to:

  • Student information: grades and class schedules.
  • Links to MyLaurier email and MyLearningSpace.
  • An up-to-date list of class cancellations.
  • Interactive campus maps for the Waterloo and Brantford campuses.
  • A searchable event listing and calendar for academic events.
  • A “What’s Cookin” link to dining options on Laurier’s Waterloo and Brantford campuses.
