Wilfrid Laurier University – Brantford Campus
Everywhere you look, people are inspired to learn, lead and build lifelong relationships, to give their all and to give back. From staff who take pride in meaningful relationships with students, to faculty who include students in ground-breaking research – you’ll know and feel you belong here. Laurier is a close-knit community with a shared dedication to creating an environment that’s empowering for all.
No matter how you choose to live your Laurier experience, you’re a Golden Hawk, which means you’re part of a tight-knit, supportive community that aims high and works hard. Out of all undergraduate students surveyed across Canada, Laurier student satisfaction is ranked the highest in the Maclean's University Rankings.
For more than 100 years, Laurier has been a premier destination for students who want to excel outside the classroom as much as they do inside it. Our strong partnerships with the regions we call home bring university learning to life. Through community placements, volunteering and local job opportunities, students are inspired to give back and make a difference.
Study in Brantford
Our Brantford Campus has quickly established itself as a dynamic institution offering a unique combination of liberal arts and professional programs.
Our presence has transformed the downtown core of the City of Brantford into a thriving student community, home to around 3,000 undergraduate and graduate students. With buildings spread throughout the core of the city, the Brantford campus is literally woven into the downtown. But the strong connections between campus and community don’t end there. Students bring classroom learning to life through community partnerships and volunteer placements.
Shaped by its location on the historic Grand River and proximity to the major industrial and consumer markets of North America, Brantford has a thriving community that is home to a number of global business operations, but people are drawn to the region for so much more. A healthy arts and culture scene, a world-class trail system for walking and biking, and a strong slate of festivals and events make Brantford a vibrant place to call home for residents and students alike.
In addition to opportunities for high school applicants, our partnership with a number of Ontario colleges allows students to enter university studies with relevant transfer credits that shorten the length of time required to complete a degree.
