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.

Brantford Campus Tour +

Join us for an enhanced visit to Laurier’s Brantford campus during our Tour + event, happening Thursday, Feb. 1, 2018 from 3:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. 

Tour + is a flexible event and you will be able to participate in portions that interest you most, including:

  • A guided campus tour by a current Laurier student which includes residence
  • A 40-minute information session on the admissions process, costs of university and financial resources available at Laurier (offered at 4:30 p.m. or at 5:30 p.m.)
  • An information fair, where you will be able to talk to students and faculty from your program(s) of interest and other campus representatives

Register for Tour +

Free street parking is available around Laurier's Brantford campus. More details on parking will be included in event emails, so we encourage you to register in advance!

After you register, you will be sent a link to an online form asking you how you would like to participate in Tour + to help us plan for your arrival. Your submission will not be your completed schedule because the event is flexible and you can choose activities that best suit your needs.
