Campus information

Study in a thriving, busy city with culture to spare. Or study at campus where you’re never far from your latest outdoor adventure. Laurier offers both worlds: our campus in Waterloo boasts a close-knit university community in the heart of a tech-savvy city, while our campus in Brantford provides a downtown campus experience within walking distance of restaurants, shopping and entertainment. And both are just an hour away from Toronto.

Brantford Campus:

  • Brantford campus is rooted in the downtown core, offering you a unique campus-life experience.

Waterloo Campus:

  • Located in Waterloo boasts a close-knit university community in the heart of a tech-savvy city.
