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.

You’re here to learn, and we’re here to help you succeed. Having trouble writing an essay? Taking notes? Choosing classes? Don’t be shy. Ask for help – we’re happy to give it!

Academic Advising and Support

Our Academic Advising and Support services can help you plan your program requirements and ensure you develop the necessary writing and study skills to succeed academically. 

Services for student success are delivered in small groups and individual consultation settings, and are designed to encourage the sharing of ideas and peer learning.

Undergraduate academic advisors, can help you with course selection, transfer information, graduate options and more. 

Accessible Learning

Our Accessible Learning Centre helps students with documented disabilities reach their full academic potential. The centre provides tutoring assistance, learning strategy and assistive technology support, exam accommodation and alternate-format course materials.
