About

For more than a century, Laurier has been known for academic excellence. But we’ve also been dedicated to the philosophy that our students’ success is measured through more than grades – it’s based on the quality of the lives they lead, and those they inspire. Laurier’s two campuses are in Waterloo and Brantford, but we also have a Faculty of Social Work in nearby Kitchener and a weekend MBA program in Toronto. In all, we have 19,000 undergraduate and graduate students. Kitchener-Waterloo, with a population of about 350,000, is small enough to be safe and easy to navigate but large enough to offer great art, music, restaurants and other big-city amenities.

With the university's size, Laurier is large enough to provide various clubs, programs, and career opportunities; yet small enough to maintain the tight-knit community feel, outstanding student experience and to ensure access to faculty and resources available on campus. Our small class sizes allow more opportunities for extra help, increased discussion and student involvement. But no matter where you study at Laurier, you’re a Golden Hawk, which means you’re part of a tight-knit, supportive community that knows how to aim high, work hard and take advantage of some truly amazing opportunities to make a difference.
