Where you live and how you get to your classes are important to your university life. Laurier provides information to help you decide whether you should apply for residence or seek housing off campus. If you live off campus, you’ll also find information on public transportation options and availability of parking services to help you with your commute.
You can choose from 2 residence styles and 15 residence buildings located around Laurier’s campus.
Laurier has created 2 resource pages that allow landlords to post listings and apartments and help you in your search for off-campus accommodations: 1 for off-campus housing at Waterloo and 1 for
off-campus housing at Brantford.
Whether you live in residence or off campus, finding a place to eat is made easier with the University’s meal plans, which give you access to both on- and off-campus vendors.
Residence life is about more than where you live – it is where you will find a community. With a senior student mentor to guide you, you will have the chance to participate in exciting programming that builds on what you are learning inside the classroom while getting to know students from different programs.
Laurier’s campus is served by a large number of transit systems, for easy travel to and from campus. All full-time undergraduate students at Laurier enjoy unlimited transit travel with their OneCard on Grand River Transit in Waterloo and on Brantford transit buses. You can access one or both campuses by GO Transit, Greyhound Bus Lines or VIA Rail.
Parking at Laurier assists you with parking or transportation needs including alternative transportation such as transit, cycling and carpooling.
