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.


It’s hard to explain what it means to be a Golden Hawk without meeting us in person. No matter which of our campuses you tour, once you come, you’ll immediately feel the community spirit that makes Laurier special.

Visit us in person by booking a campus tour, or during one of our open houses or campus event days. If you can’t visit us in person, you can experience our campuses with a virtual campus tour.

Waterloo Campus – Faculty of Music Open House

Join us Friday, Mar. 9 for our Faculty of Music Open House on our Waterloo campus. Take advantage of this opportunity to experience what it is like to be a Laurier music student and sit in on current student classes. Not only will you meet students and faculty, you’re invited to hear them perform in a concert to start off your day. Visit our Faculty of Music section for more information and event registration.
